On today’s episode of Upskill With Edtech we are lucky enough to have two esteemed guests, one of whom is Jaime Fall, Director of UpSkill America at the Aspen Institute, an employer-led movement to expand opportunity for America’s workers and communities by promoting training and advancement practices to help workers progress in their careers and move into better-paying jobs. We also have Molly Bashay, a State Policy Analyst with the National Skills Coalition, who is working to advance skills policies through research and analysis of state workforce policies, advocacy assistance and policy implementation support.
The conversation defines the term "skills gap” and making clear that there are a multitude of skills gaps that need to be addressed and overcome. The guests also identify various resources and organizations working hard to help create an equitable and informed workforce of learner workers.
