Leveraging City Resources to Grow Good, Accessible Jobs

As inequality grows alongside persistent racial inequities in income and employment, cities can play a leading role to create high-quality jobs and cultivate a high-road business culture through the allocation of city contracting and procurement dollars and by providing supports to help companies implement equitable business practices. This webinar will focus on equitable contracting and procurement and business supports to improve job quality, two approaches cities can take to grow good jobs. This is the first of an ongoing webinar series presented by the All-In Cities Initiative at PolicyLink highlighting proven and innovative policy solutions to build equitable cities for all.
