THE FUTURE OF CARE WORK

©2023 Cornell University

Our first webinar will explore how equity in job creation is defined – with a focus on job growth through the current expansion of infrastructure investment. Central to any definition are questions about identifying the policy outcomes and how to measure these.

On February 24th, 12:30 - 2 pm, join us as Andrea Flynn, Senior Director, Insight Center, discusses current research on equity in job creation in the construction industry with Raahi Reddy, Director of Metro's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Program, and Kelly Kupcak, Executive Director, Oregon Tradeswomen, who will present on how they have successfully positioned equity at the center of job creation initiatives in the building trades in Oregon. Labor Leader, Leah Rambo, will round out the discussion with insights from the building trades.

NYS Department of Labor Commissioner, Roberta Reardon, and U.S. Department of Labor Policy Advisor in the Office of the Secretary, Katelyn Walker Mooney will discuss the critical role state and federal leaders can play in driving equity in job creation in the construction industry forward. The webinar will close with a discussion between panelists and participants on how local and state innovations can be adapted and replicated at a larger scale to ensure a just economic recovery for everyone.

Topics

Public discussions on the growing care economy often fail to recognize that jobs in the care system are widely devalued, underpaid, and often defined by difficult, degrading working conditions. Care workers often face significant stress and trauma in these jobs, and yet often face barriers to accessing care themselves—a problem made starkly visible during the Covid-19 pandemic. As these public and policy discussions to shape the future of care work advance, it is a critical moment to put the needs, voices, and experiences of care workers themselves at the center of the discussion on the future of care work: how can we take care of care workers?

Taking care of care workers includes structural solutions that value their labor with good wages and dignified working conditions. But it also includes attending to the heavy impact of stress, trauma and oppression that care workers face due to the work they are doing and their position as a workforce that is devalued and made up disproportionately of women, people of color, and immigrants. Taking care of care workers paves the way for them to take leadership in organizing and advocating for their needs. 

In order to have this conversation and collectively develop strategies for addressing the needs of care workers, The Worker Institute seeks to convene advocates, care workers, labor leaders, and scholars into a network that will help build power for care workers and lift standards in the care economy by putting public focus on the urgency of taking care of care workers.

 Taking Care of Care Workers is an in-person convening in New York City on June 16 & 17 to lay the foundation for this network with care economy leaders, centering on the needs, voices, and experiences of workers who are providing care while facing steep barriers to accessing care themselves. 
 
For participants who have registered to attend, on-site check-in will open at 3:30 PM (Friday) and 8:30 A.M (Saturday). Please bring a photo ID on respective days, to make your way through security (using the Entrance located at 570 Lexington Avenue, corner of 51st Street) and to pick up your registration badge.

A Webinar Series Co-Hosted by US Department of Labor–Women’s Bureau & The Worker Institute at Cornell ILR

This webinar series will bring together researchers, policy makers, practitioners, unions, philanthropy, and advocates to share current research and praxis that address the need for a just economic recovery that reverses long-existent inequalities in job creation and access. The current crisis of inequality, made worse by the intersecting crisis of the pandemic and its impact on women and people of color, accelerates the need to envision job creation through the perspective of an equity lens.

Unprecedented levels of public investment to spur economic recovery after two years of the COVID-19 pandemic creates an historic opportunity to dismantle structural barriers and achieve equity and inclusion in economic development through high-quality jobs access for women and people of color. The question this webinar series will explore is how best to achieve equity goals. Drawing on existing models of practice from around the United States, this series will show how local and state actors have successfully implemented equity and job creation.

The goal of this series is to showcase current research on equity and its application to spur the upscaling of effective policy innovation at the state and local level at a time of record levels of economic investment by the federal government.  

The ILR School of Cornell University is the leading college of the applied social sciences focusing on work, employment, and labor policy issues and practices of national and international significance.
