Healthcare Industry Recovery Panel

National Skills Coalition (NSC) and Business Leaders United for Workforce Partnerships (BLU) has convened a Healthcare Industry Recovery Panel of industry leaders and experts to share recommendations on the Biden Administration’s caregiving workforce initiative and related policies through meetings with the Department of Health and Human Services and Congressional leadership.

Consistent with our Inclusive Economic Recovery framework, we want to ensure these initiatives help address: the disproportionate impact of the economic crisis on workers of color, immigrants, and workers with a high school diploma or less; the essential role of businesses who hire locally and invest in their people but need policymakers to be their partner; and the moral and economic imperative to dismantle structural racism within workforce education and training. Skills training alone will not ensure an inclusive recovery, but it must be part of our nation’s federal policy response.
