The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown millions of low-income Americans out of work and jolted millions of existing workers with new demands for digital skills. From home health to retail, construction to food services, many industries have undergone 5-10 years of technological change in a matter of months. In this webinar, find out how public housing advocates can help residents adapt to this changing labor market. Bring your questions!

This webinar is part of a webinar series that aims to help ConnectHomeUSA participating communities achieve their goals in connecting households to broadband and assisting communities in their digital inclusion and digital literacy efforts. View all webinars in the ConnectHomeUSA Webinar Series.
