On December 17, Maureen Conway (vice president of the Aspen Institute and executive director of the Economic Opportunities Program) participated in the Good Jobs Challenge Expert Panel, a virtual event hosted by the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA). The first half of the discussion, about Building Effective Partnerships, featured Conway in conversation with Lexi Barrett (U.S. Department of Education), Angela Hanks (U.S. Department of Labor), and moderator Alejandra Castillo (EDA). The second half of the discussion, about Employer Engagement, featured Maurice Jones (OneTen), Kimberly Shin (Talent Rewire), Andy Van Kleunen (National Skills Coalition), and moderator Michele Chang (EDA). The Good Jobs Challenge aims to get Americans back to work by building and strengthening systems and partnerships that bring together employers who have hiring needs with other key entities to train workers with in-demand skills that lead to good-paying jobs.
