While conversations around workforce development are happening all over the city, organizations are still struggling to find tangible ways to bring more nontraditional populations into the workforce, particularly the homeless and panhandling communities.
At this issue forum, businesses will share their success stories and provide practical solutions that can grow your business while still having a positive impact on Philadelphia. Join us for a discussion on these collaborative efforts underway.
Ticket price includes $5 donation to the City of Philadelphia's Office of Homeless Services' "Make Your Change Count" campaign.
Free parking available on-site.
