Skills Coalition Summit 2020
Posted February 2020
Center staff, Karitsa Holdzkom, attended Skills Summit 2020, the National Skills Coalition’s annual conference in D.C. The Summit was structured around the Coalition’s Skills for Good Jobs agenda, a set of policy recommendations that advance the interests of the nation’s workforce. Staying ahead of federal workforce policy is crucial to making sure that it works effectively. During the conference, attendees heard from Coalition policy staff about the federal policy landscape - including potential legislative momentum on higher education, apprenticeship, and the impact of automation, technology and AI on the workforce - and the legislative priorities on Capitol Hill. The upcoming presidential election was highlighted in the context of voter urgency around skills training. Leaders from the US Departments of Labor and Education spoke about workforce priorities for 2020 and how advocates can engage key federal agencies to advance the Skills for Good Jobs agenda.
