A recent survey of workforce boards by the Federal Reserve indicated that nearly 60% of WIBs have representatives from the banking industry on their boards. However, only 10% of boards had engaged Community Reinvestment Act funding to develop complementary programs. So how can WIBs better partner with this important and expanding industry sector to bring services to low-income job seekers or youth and better prepare them to enter or re-enter the workforce? The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) is legislation that puts an obligation on banks to serve all members of the community where they take deposits, and meet the credit needs of their local areas. The Federal Reserve has oversight of the CRA, and wants to develop new and innovative ways for banks to meet their requirements under the Act by serving the low to middle income population through partnerships with the workforce system. Join us NAWB CEO Ron Painter as he interviews Federal Reserve of Kansas City’s Community Development Director, Steve Shepelwich, on Monday, December 2nd at 1:00 PM. During this 30-minute interview, learn how the Federal Reserve system can help WIBs partner with local banks to create complementary programs and even identify funding streams to advance financial literacy and workforce readiness among their customers.

Can WIA funds be leveraged to assist communities during and after disaster events? How can workforce development organizations provide innovative solutions as part of a disaster response? On the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, the National Association of Workforce Boards, in conjunction with the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Disaster Management (CDM), released a new research report titled The Impact of Extreme Events on Business Organizations: Innovative Approaches to Managing Risk. In this episode of Workforce Central Radio, NAWB CEO Ron Painter interviews Dr. Louise Comfort, the Director of the CDM and author of the report. Drawing on research interviews with nine innovative WIBs who showed leadership in their communities during disaster events, they will discuss the important role workforce boards can take in helping their areas during times of disaster, the policies that should be in place to help maximize efforts, and how they can leverage existing programs and become a bridge between federal disaster programs and municipal/local efforts. Please join us on Wednesday, December 18th for this insightful interview!
