Invite you to a Congressional briefing in recognition of Infrastructure Week:

Building an Infrastructure Workforce

May 14th, 2 PM ET

Investments in U.S. infrastructure could strengthen our economic competitiveness and enhance public safety. They could also provide millions of new jobs for Americans who are currently out of work, underemployed, or seeking higher wages. Taking full advantage of this potential job creation will require not just investing in our physical capital, but also investing in our human capital—making sure workers have updated skills for these jobs. This briefing will highlight how employers and other stakeholders are partnering to develop workforce pipelines in infrastructure sectors, and explore how federal policy can support these innovative strategies.

Panelists include:

  • Emma Brennan, WANTO Technical Assistant Project Manager, Community Services Agency of the Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO (DC)
  • Andy Coulouris, Director of Federal Affairs, DTE Energy
  • Madeline Iseli, Senior Vice President of Advancement, Sinclair Community College (OH)
  • Victoria Johnson, Workforce Consultant, Jacobs Engineering (GA/MI)
  • Sean Polster, Councilmember, Warrenton, VA and NLC Board Member (VA)
