Working Smarter: Driving Employment Empowerment with Career Literacy and Networks (Feb. 2023)
Contributed by: Amanda McCammon
What does it take to build careers with higher wages, less risk of unemployment, better benefits, more autonomy over work conditions, and the ability to build savings? The DeBruce Foundation report, Working Smarter: Driving Employment Empowerment with Career Literacy and Networks, explores the role of career literacy and networks in building resilient careers. This first-of-its-kind research provides actionable insights for workforce development professionals, educators, and all who are invested in helping individuals build thriving career paths. In this session, participants will also learn about the statewide partnership between Indiana and The DeBruce Foundation, how to access the Agile Work Profiler within the Indiana Career Explorer platform, and ways to tap into additional support opportunities. Join us to hear directly from practitioners in the field about how they are leveraging The DeBruce Foundation’s career resources with their clients. Together, we can develop career literacy and empower Hoosiers of all ages!
