BizFed Anti Poverty & Economic Mobility Mtg: Partnering with Community Colleges

I would like to invite you to join BizFed’s Anti-Poverty & Economic Mobility Committee on Tuesday, October 6th, at 1 pm to discuss future partnerships with community colleges.

Understanding that Los Angeles County faces a homeless crisis, BizFed committed to lifting 1 million LA County residents out of poverty by 2028.

In researching a path forward, preliminary results from BizFed’s annual Pulse Poll has indicated that the best way for their members to be a part of the solution and help their employees escape or not fall into poverty is by partnering with community colleges to create new short term industry-specific programs.

To best inform our members on how to be a part of the solution and help create these short-term programs, BizFed has invited the following partners to join our cause:

Panel #1 - Engaging Employers In Customized Training

  1. Dejah Swingle, Director, Career Education, Mt. San Antonio College
  2. Sasha King, Director, Business Development and Small Business Support, Santa Monica College 
  3. Margaret Fernandez, Grant Manager, Strong Workforce Program, Rio Hondo College

Panel #2 - Benefits of Partnering with Community Colleges

  1. Joanne Peterson, Chief Human Capital & Development Officer, Metro
  2. Mike Berman, Principal Program Manager, AWS Educate. Amazon Web Services
  3. Panelist TBA
