Workforce Development Luncheon at Heckscher Foundation

Wednesday, June 03, 2015, 12:30pm – 2:00pm EDT


Were you a matched funder in the 2013-14 Workforce Development Matching Grant? Did you attend the workforce development session at this year's conference in Tel Aviv? Are you interested in learning more about services in the United States, Israel, or elsewhere that provide the “life-tools” for clients to lift themselves from poverty into solid self-support, preferably on a career track?

If so, we invite you to join us for an exclusive and intimate luncheon in NYC, hosted by The Heckscher Foundation, to learn more about the field, and to network with other funders who are involved in this funding field.

We will be joined by Angie Kamath, CEO of Per Scholas NY, who will discuss how Per Scholas engages with employers, evaluates programs, and has scaled up to a national level. We'll also learn what lessons might be applied to other organizations in the field. We'll also hear from Peter Sloane, Chairman and CEO of Heckscher Foundation, who will share their experiences in this field and the opportunities they envision for funder collaboration in the workforce development field.  They each will share best practices, lessons learned, and case studies from each of their perspectives, and the luncheon will include a lively discussion.

This is an in-person event, and will not be recorded or live-streamed.
