Are you interested in a career pivot but are unsure of what funding options are available outside of private loans? During this one-hour virtual event, our panel of industry leaders will discuss how you can take advantage of alternative funding options, such as the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), and how you can harness social funding opportunities. Combat the uncertainty of the economy with a weapon of your own: knowledge.
Moderated by ThriveDX’s Lisa Franklin, expert panelists Chelsea Gaspard, Workforce Development and Partnerships Administrator, Loyola University and Ryan Mass, Professional Development & Executive Education, NJIT will join us as panelists to break down what career training and upskilling look like and the role social funding programs, such as WIOA, play in preparing the workforce to fill high-demand roles.
