The Center Discusses Older Workers in WorkingNation Magazine
For the past five years, our media partner, WorkingNation, has taken the lead in telling stories about solutions to the skills mismatch that is disrupting the workforce and, now, how do we ensure an equitable jobs recovery.
Their recently-released digital magazine, Inquire Within, features stories about people and organizations who are striving to ensure all workers have the opportunity to obtain economic opportunity. In its pages, you will find articles, interviews, podcasts, videos, and Op-Eds. You might even stumble across some programs and initiatives you know, others you might now know. In the end, we hope that the magazine will spark ideas and everyone keeps innovating.
The Center for Workforce Inclusion was excited to contribute our expertise on older workers to this critical publication.
