The future present of work is digital.  Workforce programs must be too.

WPTI's Digital Transformation Initiative (DTI) Learning Community is a five-month, team-based, structured learning program that brings together practitioners from multiple organizations to explore issues at the nexus of workforce development and digital technology, including:

how jobs and access to jobs are being redefined, at an exponential rate, by automation and task augmentation;
the impact of digital skills gaps on income inequality and the ability to build pathways out of poverty;
opportunities to bolster the effectiveness and capacity of all facets of workforce program operations and streamline staff workflows by strategically using the right tools.

About Last Week’s Celebration of Women and the Workforce – THANK YOU!

Women, especially women of color, form the backbone of New York City’s workforce development community. To recognize and celebrate their vital contribution to creating pathways out of generational poverty for thousands of New Yorkers, over 60 attendees joined WPTI for our first in-person event in almost three years – Women and the Workforce: Rising to Meet the Moment – on Wednesday, June 8, 2022.

As WPTI’s own research documented in 2012 and 2020, women constitute nearly 7-in-10 of all frontline practitioners across New York City’s 200+ workforce development programs.
