12:00 – 4:00 p.m. | The Employer Affinity Session

We are hosting a pre-convening session exclusively for employers in healthcare, manufacturing, construction, and renewable energy. If you work for an employer in one of these industries, this session is included with your registration! It will focus on strategies to accelerate the five drivers of career navigation success:

  • Information access and accuracy
  • Skills and credentials
  • Social capital
  • Wraparound services and supports
  • Social structures and ecosystems

The Employer Affinity Session will kickoff with a cross-sector look at why these drivers matter, and what individual companies and industry partnerships have done to address some of them and improve performance. We’ll then break out into sector-based groups, in order to facilitate deeper peer learning and networking opportunities.

For healthcare employers and support organizations in our CareerSTAT network, we are holding a world cafe with several Frontline Worker Champions and Emerging Champions.

For construction, manufacturing, and renewable energy companies, we are holding a separate meeting to digest what we’re hearing and discuss the potential to create a national learning network dedicated to improving workplaces and career navigation in infrastructure.
