As the green economy expands rapidly, we have a huge opportunity and an urgent responsibility to embed inclusive processes in the explosion of jobs that are supporting a transition into a low-carbon economy.
Together with Autodesk Foundation,The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, LinkedIn, Microsoft, and Workday, NationSwell is building a cross-sector coalition of leaders and experts to create more equitable pathways to green jobs, and nurture more inclusive networks by increasing the use of skills-based hiring for in-demand and high-growth roles. With a focus on underserved communities and areas most impacted by the shift “from brown to green energy,” this work is aimed to support a just transition into a low-carbon economy.
The nuances of local needs means that placed-based, community-led and industry-specific interventions should be favored over generic solutions, and yet we know that there is work to be done to help create functioning ecosystems of stakeholders to support equitable pathways to fast-growing green jobs. In this discussion we will explore what is needed in order to support place-based coalitions that include funders, green businesses, unions & community-centered workforce development organizations.
