Developing Talent: Berkeley’s Workforce Post-COVID – Recording

September 8, 2020

COVID-19 has revealed long-standing systemic flaws in our economic systems. The uprisings over racial equity across the country compound these flaws, throwing the systemic inequities embedded in our workforce into stark relief. Companies, schools, and workers are adapting to balance new conditions brought on by these twin pandemics and are preparing for a new normal. We’re facing a time of unprecedented uncertainty—however, with it comes a window of opportunity to make long-lasting, equitable change.

On Tuesday, September 8th, TechEquity and the Berkeley Startup Cluster hosted a conversation about how Berkeley is adapting to current events and developing mechanisms to support a more equitable economy. We heard from stakeholders across the Berkeley community including the City of Berkeley, Berkeley Lab, and Berkeley SkyDeck, with additional context and insights from the Kapor Center.

This event was hosted remotely via Zoom.
