Tomorrow: NYCETC to Testify Before Congress on Connecting More People to Work

NYCETC Executive Director Jose Ortiz, Jr. will be testifying before the US Congressional Joint Economic Committee at the "Connecting More People to Work" hearing tomorrow, November 20 at 2:15 pm.

Within his testimony, Jose will discuss the ways in which the workforce development system supports people in gaining the competencies and credentials required for in-demand careers, how skills training can help alleviate negative impacts of automation and transform our workforce and economy, and highlight stories of program participants who have empowered themselves through employment and training programs to enter and thrive in the workforce. 

We thank Committee Vice Chair New York Representative Carolyn Maloney for the invitation to provide this vital perspective to the hearing and look forward to learning from other witnesses representing the Brookings Institution, Manhattan Institute, and Mercatus Center.

Call to Action:   Watch Livestream + Join the Conversation on Social Media

We encourage you to watch the livestream and participate on social media to collectively advocate for the critical role of employment and training programs in strengthening our economy. 

Organizations are encouraged to highlight their own programs and participant stories via the hashtags #FutureOfWorkers and #EconTwitter, and include @JECDems @JECRepublicans.

In the meantime, spread the word by retweeting our tweet announcing the hearing.
