In an effort to live out its value of equity, the CWDC convened partners on July 21 to discuss the 2020-2021 Talent Equity Agenda. The meeting included a review of the data related to existing racial equity gaps in the statewide talent pipeline and the selection of four areas of focus including strategies to address, track, and measure progress over the next year. The four areas of focus include: postsecondary credential attainment, unemployment, closing the digital divide, and equitable employment practices.
