A Match Made in Equity

About the Event

Community colleges are set to play a crucial role in the nation’s post-COVID economic recovery. And yet—many companies struggle to find talent from community colleges, while students, especially from low-income and minority communities, are struggling to find jobs. How do we close this gap to create stronger talent pipelines for employers while ensuring all students see greater access to job opportunities? 

 

Join us for this three-sided panel discussion—moderated by Handshake—featuring a large multinational corporation (Bank of America), a local nonprofit (Bridgewell), and community colleges (the Massachusetts community colleges). 

 

Attend this webinar to learn...

  • How employers build and diversify their talent pipelines using technology like Handshake and bring equity and access to job opportunities to community college students
  • How employers envision partnerships with community colleges and to what extent will virtual recruiting continue to play a role
  • How community college systems or districts can creatively work together to secure group funding for technology, collaborate on events, and share best practices. The Massachusetts Community Colleges will share their advice and takeaways from their own success story.
