Join us Thursday, March 16 at 2:00 p.m. ET for our webinar Service Workers with Limited Foundational Skills: What New DataTells Us & How Employers and Policymakers Can Respond.

Nearly 20 million American workers in retail, hospitality, and healthcare have limited literacy, numeracy, or technology-related skills. Get a detailed look at new findings from NSC's Foundational Skills in the Service Sector report, which draws on data from the Survey of Adult Skills (PIAAC) to shed light on working adults ages 16-64 who have limited basic skills. Learn how some employers are investing in skill-building opportunities for these workers, and find out how you can advocate for effective state and federal policies to support adult education and upskilling. 

Presenter: Amanda Bergson-Shilcock, Director of Upskilling Policy
