At CWI Labs, our mission is clear: to drive meaningful change through innovative, inclusive workforce development programs and thought leadership that powers equitable economic opportunities for all. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that Julia Pollak, Chief Economist at ZipRecruiter, will be receiving the 2023 Innovation & Thought Leadership Award at the upcoming Equity Summit 2023. Each year, the Center for Workforce Inclusion and CWI Labs convene hundreds of decision-makers, influences, policymakers, and practitioners for a unique opportunity – to discuss equitable economic opportunities for older job seekers, especially those living in historically underserved communities. Unlike other conferences, the Equity Summit is exclusively focused on advancing the workforce aspirations of older workers through solutions to systemic ageism, racism, and sexism.Julia’s remarkable contributions will take center stage during Equity Summit 2023.
