Kris Stadelman

With the pandemic stalled by the Delta Variant, how do we keep the momentum for change alive?
Alicia Aguirre
49:04
How are we connecting to the local colleges and universities in SMC to be a part of this?
Kris Stadelman
50:26
Does Brookings see potential for the Labor movement to open new opportunities for workers and apprenticeships?
Shawneece Stevenson
51:29
How can this information get to the high schools? How is this information being used to high school opportunities?
Evan Jones
51:31
Can we talk more about the pipeline? What kind of youth programs create strong skilled pipelines of candidates of color? If our kids of color are graduating (51%) but not ready for jobs or connected to jobs what responsibility do schools have for addressing that gap?
Julie Lind
51:41
Julie Lind, San Mateo Labor Council. I think another barrier, in addition to the societal mindset of college or bust, is the skewed perception of what makes a “good job”. I just heard a lot of discussion of tech and expansion of opportunities in tech, but there are current opportunities that exist to earn while you learn and to enter into a career that will afford you high wages, good benefits and retirement security - union construction apprenticeship programs. No college degree requirement, focus on diversity in hiring, targeted outreach to women, bipoc community members, veterans (helmets to hard hats) and those who have struggled within the criminal justice system.
Ruben Avelar - JobTrain
53:03
How do H1B1employment practices fit into this formula?
Pedro
55:11
I strongly recommend that we set diversity hiring goals across industries and produce quarterly progress reports.
Linda Kelly (she/her)
57:35
What about engaging a major career influencer platform like LinkedIn in playing some educational, social marketing role in this initiative.
Shireen M. (she/her)
58:01
Do you have examples of places that have successful Anchor Institution Consortiums where large employers come together to leverage learnings, make commitments, identify similar needs, and create collective pathways to solutions?
Heather Haag
58:04
I was recently part of a conversation about executives making that commitment to hire diverse talent, but the question came up 'do they have an actual plan and pipeline?' Do you believe organizations would be more successful in diverse talent hiring if we bring the talent pipeline to them through coordinated workforce development efforts? Eliminating the need for them to create their own program or initiatives
Julie Lind
58:42
And people in the service industry who make more on unemployment than they do at the workplace are staying home until employers raise their wages to a more appropriate level. People making more on unemployment than they do by working is not an indicator that unemployment is too high - it’s further proof that wages are too low.
Jennifer Chen
01:00:16
Wages need to be more equitable because the area will always need a diversity of service providers and positions. Are there areas that are looking at both looking to expand diversity in employment and increasing wages for service employees as well?
Julie Lind
01:01:08
We also run a trades apprenticeship readiness program that allows individuals with an interest in a career in construction to get an understanding of the various trades to decide which is the best fit for them. It’s the Trades Introduction Program.
Dayna Chung (she/her)
01:01:30
Can you (Annelies or Luther) about early childhood education and care and what your research shows about the importance of child care as infrastructure? And, can you also talk about how we can encourage workforce development IN early childhood education when we are competing with other industries (like tech or health care). You spoke of apprenticeships, which have been very effective in trades as well as early childhood, but we need a broader consensus around investing in service or caregiving sectors.
Shawneece Stevenson
01:01:43
That’s interesting thank you!
Shawneece Stevenson
01:02:10
Did you say sniffing?
Linda Kelly (she/her)
01:05:18
My 17 year old son just entered a program called YouthBuild where he will be learning construction an earning his GED, diploma optional, and they have a pipeline to the local union. This is Kitsap County, WA.
Linda Kelly (she/her)
01:05:46
It’s funded by the US Department of Labor
Rick Bonilla San Mateo
01:09:26
I appreciate Anneliese comments on Building Trades apprentice training programs. It needs to be known that these programs are an extremely large, comprehensive and undeniably inclusive training programs. Diversity and equality are at the core of the labor movement. The construction workplace is extremely competitive and would benefit from having some support from our elected leadership for the trained and skilled members. We need to make efforts to require that building contractors are not wage thieves and do indeed hire apprentices from a state accredited apprentice training program . Our built environment is too important to leave to untrained workers or unscrupulous contractors. Will local elected leaders step up to the plate to create the construction workforce of the future?
Cora Dino
01:11:58
How do you integrate city/local govt demographics that may not be as diverse in the commitment to diversity and inclusion providing the exec. makes it a priority?

@Dayna: Please take a look at the new nanny course being offered at Foothill College. The goal is to build on the programming such that the College provides a nanny certification program where you can earn credits toward an AA and are transferrable to other universities. https://foothill.edu/childdevelopment/nanny.html

Thank you !

01:24:35
Nova workshop and classes are excellent
Dayna Chung (she/her)
01:26:28
Thank you, @karen! So glad you mentioned this wonderful program for supporting child care in home settings. The groundbreaking new program that TIFFIN has created in partnership with Foothill is a great example of the early childhood education workforce pathways we need to invest in and scale. Please feel free to check out the Teacher Pipeline Project that CEC offers in partnership with Skyline and Foothill. Here’s a link: https://www.communityequitycollaborative.org/ece-course.html. There are some promising models, including the Early Childhood Education apprenticeship program that the San Mateo County Community District is launching. But, our early childhood educator shortage is severe. We need A LOT more support and investment to scale these programs (among other workforce development supports).
Rick Bonilla San Mateo
01:26:56
These programs are excellent examples of how people get from being "Others" to BELONGING!
Kate Comfort Harr (she/her)

How can we reach out to Gisele and Shanise if we have something that might be of interest to them?
Kris Stadelman

Christopher Starling
01:37:27
It was stated before, looking for a job by yourself is really hard. Having an advocate - someone who can vouch for your talent and character - this is really important. At NPower we create relationships with the CIOs and HR directorates of companies - and when we send someone like Shanise to interview, she has a competitive advantage because the company knows she has been through a rigorous program and has earned industry recognized certifications.
Shireen M. (she/her)
01:39:33
Thank you for the amazing wisdom. I also really appreciate the honesty about experiences with discrimination and bias. It's very painful and very real. Many companies don't realize it's happening at every level.
Sharadon Smith
01:54:03
I love the Worker's Journey. Having worked with many clients, no one gets a job in a vacuum. Supporting their life is key too.
Shawneece Stevenson
01:56:06
How can we build a stronger partnership between the worker’s journey across systems like child care?
Shawneece Stevenson
01:56:25
How does NOVA work with child care?
