How can we increase the possibility of working from home for disadvantaged populations, groups? How do we leverage job training and make sure that they have adequate computer hardware, internet access? This also feeds into the new world of healthcare access.

The City is doing a broadband study now to help determine wifi barriers to full participation. Many companies are having a major culture shift around remote work - and equipment/policies that is now opening up new possibilities.

That broadband as a utility issue is fascinating. Are there advocacy needs/opportunities around that issue that we can support?

Stimulating our economy and employment go way beyond the digital divide. It's about practices in employment, especially those that perpetuate inequities.

Call me skeptical, but I don't think "incentivizing" more progressive policies for employers is enough: I think they will have to be mandated - even if the employers kick and scream about it
Althea Porter
04:38:36
Thank you for your comment.
Population Health Collaborative
04:39:23
Exactly! We need to take away the sweet spot where employers exploit their workers!
Althea Porter
04:44:44
Yes, we need to hold employers accountable - incentives may not work
Althea Porter
04:48:58
Oftentimes, the internet with the ATS systems and third-party job boards are barriers to getting jobs.
Althea Porter
04:51:06
Let us closely examine all barriers to employment.
Samantha Hidalgo
04:52:27
I think you are absolutely right Althea if we don’t look at all the barrier we won’t be able to make meaningful and impactful change
Althea Porter
04:55:50
Let me be clear, employers also create barriers to jobs.
Julie BarrettONeill- LISC WNY
04:56:02
Agreed Althea!
