World Cafe on Jobs & Workforce Development

March 17, 2016. Saint Peter's Church & World Outreach Center

This world café drew 80 participants who discussed barriers to employment, job skills straining for low-income individuals and how to create better paying jobs.

Prompts for the table discussions were:

1.  How might we create more living-wage jobs in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County? 

2. How can we overcome primary barriers to employment, such as felony record, ageism, racism, sexism, unpredictable schedules for low-wage workers, and others?

3. How can we expand access to job training/skills programs, enabling more low-income individuals to secure steady work?

Read the list of ideas generated by the table discussions.
