Workforce Matters Learning Networks

Led by Jennie Sparandara of JPMorgan Chase and Janelle Williams of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, this learning network explores issues of racial equity in workforce development. We will provide learning opportunities and professional development; facilitate peer learning and exchange; and develop, refine and learn about tools we can use in our workforce development grantmaking to address disparities and move toward greater equity.

Future of Work
Interested in how work is changing and what that means workers and employers as well as the education and training systems? Join members of this network to learn about and explore these issues together.
A number of funders are investing resources directly in changing employer practices to benefit frontline workers, improve job quality, and increase access to training and advancement. What does this look like and what are we learning? Join the conversation to learn with us!
Joint Learning Opportunities
In 2018, Workforce Matters is partnering with Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) to launch a learning community focused on immigrant workforce issues. This learning community is open to Workforce Matters and GCIR networks. Learning Community members will have the opportunity to help to establish shared learning goals and priorities as well as co-create avenues for peer learning and exchange.
