Global pandemic has us all living in a time of unprecedented uncertainty with respect to our work and well-being. For frontline workers these uncertainties are particularly acute. Organizations that have worked with these vulnerable workers are facing new needs and challenges among both the workers and the companies that they serve. Join us for a conversation with leaders from two organizations that have extensive experience in understanding and meeting the needs of frontline workers while also working with companies on strategies to better support these workers. In this conversation we will discuss strategies for strengthening supervision of frontline workers, a key aspect of job quality and the planned focus of this discussion. But we will put that discussion into the context of how that experience, and other experience supporting low-wage workers and their employers, can be leveraged to respond to the current moment.
The panel includes Emily Dieppa (Workforce Innovations Consultant, PHI), Katie Lynn-Vecqueray (Customer Success Manager, WorkLife Partnership), Liddy Romero (Founder and Executive Director, WorkLife Partnership; Job Quality Fellow, The Aspen Institute), and moderator Maureen Conway (Vice President for Policy Programs, The Aspen Institute; Executive Director, Economic Opportunities Program).
This webinar is the fourth in our Job Quality in Practice webinar series. The Job Quality in Practice series is designed to support practitioners across fields – including workforce development, economic development, capital deployment, policy, worker advocacy, and business – to address job quality in their work. Webinars will share actionable tools and approaches, highlight leading practitioners’ work, and create connections across disciplines.
