Some people have been affected much more deeply than others — in particular, people of color, women, those working low-wage jobs and those without a bachelor’s degree.
Creating a more equitable labor market is a core focus of the Alliance and we are prioritizing racial equity in the following ways:
By looking at the job histories of 29 million people, the Alliance has identified a suite of jobs where people without a degree are able to succeed if we provide the necessary support to help them move into – and be successful in – these roles.
The data shows that many workers from low-wage roles have developed the experience necessary to be successful in higher-skilled, good jobs and to continue to progress to better roles in our changing digital economy. This work underpins our approach to driving an equitable recovery and helping more workers to access better jobs.
