Advocating for Job Quality: Report Launch & Learn

10/30/2019 09:00 AM - 11:00 AM CST

Description

Please join us for a special event on October 30th to learn about a groundbreaking report and call to action connecting job quality and workers’ rights education to workforce development programs throughout Chicago. University of Illinois’ Labor Education Program, in collaboration with Chicago Jobs Council and UIC’s Great Lakes Center for Occupational Health and Safety are excited to share with you findings from their survey of Chicagoland workforce providers who are actively educating their participants about their rights on the job and pursuing collaborations with high road employers. The event will offer an opportunity for you to learn about these laudable efforts and struggles, explore how your organization can support pursuit of “high-road” pathways, and participate in discussion with your colleagues around this topic.  

All attendees will receive a printed copy of the report Workers’ Rights in Workforce Development: Successes and Struggles of Chicagoland Workforce Practitioners Pursuing Higher Job Quality, as well as the opportunity to review the forthcoming 3rd edition of the first in the nation comprehensive curriculum connecting workers’ rights education to job training programs.
