DMV Divide: Workforce Development 11/15

This will be our final DMV Divide event of 2022! Join us at the new AWS Skills Center in National Landing and be a part of the conversation helping to advance workforce development efforts in the DMV! Wharton Club members & guests are invited.


Join the Washington Business Journal for a candid conversation about workforce development efforts in the region.

Find out about the importance workforce development plays in addressing barriers that keep under-represented minorities from fully participating in our economy.

This is the final installment of the four-part series that was created to spotlight equity issues across the DMV. Earlier this year we hosted discussions on affordable housing, health equity and access to capital. Find out how you can help advance workforce development efforts to help bring equity to all!
