KRA Staff Present at WORKCON 2021!

An Equitable Recovery

Maxine Suka and Jonathan Overall and Holly Childs will share their well-earned knowledge and expertise at the California Workforce Association (CWA) Annual Spring Conference.

As a long-time provider of WIA/WIOA Career and Business Services for multiple Counties and Cities under California’s WDB system, KRA supports the CWA/WORKCON 2021 statement, “Inequity has been the number one challenge of this economic recession.

Low-wage workers are experiencing a bigger burden, including greater risks to their health, and higher unemployment rates. We have also seen labor market declines being concentrated among communities of color and women.”

On May 26, (10:30am – PST), Suka, Director of Workforce Operations, will present Parenting in a Pandemic: A Millennial MOMoir to Remember. She has stated, “Millennials are now the largest generation in the U.S. labor force. Yet they have also earned the dubious distinction of experiencing two once-in-a-lifetime economic catastrophes before the oldest have even turned 40 years old.”

On May 27 (10:30am – PST), Overall, Program Manager/Business Services Specialist, and Childs, Business Services Manager, San Diego County Career Centers, will co-present Pandemic Proof Business Services: Lessons Learned and Best Practices

According to Overall, “When COVID-19 hit, it impacted every sector of the economy, requiring workforce-services agencies to be responsive to the challenges presented by the pandemic.  The shift to virtual workplaces not only affected the workflow of our San Diego team, but how we delivered services to businesses.

Our workshop provides an overview of our approach to business engagement; how we adjusted our service delivery during the pandemic; and how we engaged businesses virtually.”
