Human Services

A new report, “Reshaping WIOA and Building a More Equitable Workforce System,” delves into the complexities of workforce development policies, particularly focusing on the Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) and its impact on workforce outcomes.

The report highlights how workforce policies, including WIOA, have unintentionally perpetuated racial disparities and widened the racial wealth gap in our society. It emphasizes the need for a paradigm shift towards policies and practices that prioritize equity, ensuring that everyone has equal access to employment, education and training opportunities. It also includes actionable recommendations to address these disparities and foster a more inclusive workforce system.
