Equity is a key priority for workforce agencies everywhere, but where to start? One answer is data. Join us for a roundtable conversation with state and local workforce practitioners about their experience using data to advance equity in workforce development.


Join us for a conversation on strategies for advancing equity through the use of data. Speakers will share experiences and resources that cover principles and frameworks for collecting and using data to examine issues of equity; leveraging data collaboratives; and using data in research and service delivery. State and local workforce representatives will share their efforts to advance equity by: enhancing data quality; building capacity to use data; and developing and using data dashboards, data collaboratives, and other tools. The event supports guidance issued by DOL in TEGL 21-22 on increasing equitable service access and outcomes for job seekers in WIOA Adult and Dislocated Worker programs. The Department of Labor’s Chief Evaluation Office and the Employment and Training Administration’s Office of Workforce Investment will co-host this session.
