Webinar Will Probe Quality Jobs

The Kansas City Fed is cohosting the final webinar in a three-part series on strategies to promote and improve quality jobs for lower-wage workers on April 26. The series is a partnership with the National Fund for Workforce Solutions, the Aspen Institute, and the Good Companies, Good Jobs Initiative at the Sloan School of Management in connection with the Federal Reserve System's initiative Investing in America's Workforce.

The webinar will explore what factors facilitate—or hinder—the creation of high-quality jobs. Panelists will discuss recent research on job quality and share insights into factors that affect job quality in two industries—long-term care and retail—that employ large numbers of low-paid workers.

Barbara Dyer of Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Sloan School of Management and executive director of the Good Companies, Good Jobs Initiative at Sloan will moderate the session.

Panelists include:

  • Paul Osterman, MIT Sloan School of Management
  • Françoise Carré, University of Massachusetts Boston

Register for the April 26 session, which takes place at 3:00 p.m. ET. Participation in this series is free, but registration is required for each webinar.
