Build an Equitable Workforce

Adding Equity to Labor Market Navigator

Equity in the workplace starts with equitable education which will lead to fair treatment in access, opportunity, and advancement for everyone. To help educators explore if their students have equitable access for their future, Pathway2Careers Labor Market is adding equity data to identify the racial and gender disparities in different industries. 

The new data sets, available in May, will allow educators to meet Perkins V requirements by addressing the needs of disadvantaged populations in their region. Acknowledging inequities and understanding the reasoning behind them are the first steps in creating a more equitable labor market.
