In the year since the release of the book Investing in America’s Workforce: Improving Outcomes for Workers and Employers, the New York Fed has organized a number of events across the Second District that are part of the Federal Reserve’s Investing in America’s Workforce (IAW) initiative.

IAW aims to better understand the evolving labor market, and to underscore the importance of workforce development to the U.S. economy. Over the past four years, our team has partnered with numerous organizations across the Second District to better understand the challenges, strategies, and opportunities for investing in workforce development.

Throughout 2019, we held related events in Rochester, Westchester, Manhattan, and Buffalo, through which we learned how workforce practitioners and researchers are applying the book’s strategies and practices in local communities. Takeaways from these discussions follow.
