Register today for the September 26 Connecting Communities: Engaging Banks in Workforce Development

The workforce development system trains, educates and provides social services to working-age individuals to help them succeed in the labor force and, at the same time, meet employers’ demand for quality talent. Banks and organizations partnering with them can play an important role in workforce development and the economic health of low- and moderate-income communities. Find out how by joining us for this one-hour Connecting Communities® webinar. It will present tools and information for banks to engage in workforce development activities that may help them fulfill their obligations under the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA).

Speakers will include workforce development entities and their bank partners. They’ll be introduced by Elizabeth Sobel Blum, senior community development advisor at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, who will give a brief overview of the Dallas and Kansas City Feds’ publication, “Engaging Workforce Development: A Framework for Meeting CRA Obligations.”
