Maria Flynn Jobs for the Future

What makes a “good” job– and how can the public sector, investors, and philanthropists encourage employers to develop them? Join Maria Flynn of Jobs for the Future and Todd Fisher of the U.S. Department of Commerce as they explore how the bipartisan CHIPS and Science Act incentivized positive employer steps to support good jobs– including providing childcare for employees and training for skilled technical roles that don’t require a four-year college degree. But while Federal investment can catalyze new investments by employers, it won’t be enough to make these changes permanent. Maria and Todd will reflect on how this effort was developed, the outcomes thus far, and how the public, private, and nonprofit sectors can work together to extend the impact of the CHIPS Act and create good jobs that enable economic mobility.
