Webinar on Short-Term Credentials and Racial Equity

A recent report shows that 49% of U.S. workers with both high school diplomas and professional certifications are in good jobs. But, not all non-degree credentials lead to such outcomes. With Lumina Foundation’s support, National Skills Coalition and Education Strategy Group are partnering to help states and postsecondary systems prioritize quality non-degree credentials that help people find and keep better jobs. And, these states and systems are tracking outcomes to ensure racial equity.

Join Lumina for “Short-Term Credentials and Racial Equity: Complicated Past, Promising Future,” a webinar on Wednesday, August 12 at 2:00 pm EST.

A panel of experts (below) will examine the history of occupational segregation and credentialing:

  • Eloy Ortiz Oakley, Chancellor, California Community Colleges @EloyOakley
  • Megan Healy, Chief Workforce Advisor to the Governor, Virginia
  • Nicole Washington, Principal, Washington Education Strategies @nicolewesgroup
  • Leander McDonald, United Tribes Technical College
  • Moderator: Amber Garrison Duncan, Strategy Director, Lumina Foundation
