10. Enabling New Americans in the Workforce
*GUEST: KATIE NIELSON, PHD, CEO, VOXY ENGEN.* By 2024, as baby boomers reach retirement age, 97% of net workforce growth will come from immigrants and their children. Join Amy and her guest Katie Nielson, PhD, Founder and Chief Education Officer of Voxy EnGen, as they talk about enabling these new Americans in the workforce. With access to meaningful and effective language training, immigrants and refugees can get better jobs and more educational opportunities. At the same time, companies that want to build their talent pipeline can make language learning part of a bigger body of skills-based training, drawing upon their existing pool of workers to fill open positions. By upskilling incumbent employees, companies can save on recruiting costs and provide their employees with opportunities for economic mobility.
