Thanks to all of who you participated in our 10th annual policy and budget conference on Thursday! We were pleased to have been joined by state agency leaders, community providers, sponsors and more for a robust conversation on how to “Pave the Way for Good Jobs.” Please find materials, photos, videos and press from the event below. Let’s keep the conversation going on how to ensure all workers – especially lower-skilled Rhode Islanders – have access to the skills training and education they need to be successful.
