INCO's TarmacTX program is collaborating with the City of Austin Civilian Conservation Corps (ACCC), Blue Sky Partners and DivInc, to offer the Green Workforce Accelerator, a program that supports organizations interested in building equitable pathways into jobs that create a greener and more sustainable Austin. Five organizations have been selected to design, launch and/or scale green workforce training programs that provide economic mobility for underserved communities.

Empowering  Women

The COVID-19 pandemic has unveiled the inequities of “business as usual” in the United States, up-ending our education and healthcare systems alongside jobs and care-taking.

 

Overwhelmingly, it has been women who have paid the price. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the workplace. Forced to choose between career and family - an ugly truth that exposes pervasive systems of patriarchy - women have been forced to leave their jobs in droves. From top earners to minimum wage workers, no woman has been spared. Without intervention, economists predict another 257 years until we close the global gender gap.

Watch the conversation here: 

1

 Investing in Resilience 

Women founders only receive 2% of the total share of VC-backed investments, despite performing 63% better than all-male founded companies. Leveling the playing field for entrepreneurship is the single most important thing we can do to build a better economy. What would a more equitable system look like?

Unlocking Opportunities 

STEM jobs continue to grow exponentially, many providing upwardly mobile career paths. However, women still only represent 25% of workers in high-value STEM careers like computing. Women of color represent just 4% percent. On the other hand, women are overrepresented in low-wage, low-mobility STEM jobs such as health aides. How do we shift the balance and ensure more women - and especially women of color – areempowered to thrive in high-opportunity careers?

 Work Reimagined 

Three - million women left their jobs in 2020, nearly twice the number of men. And although we seem to be on the other side of the pandemic, another 25% are considering leaving the workforce or downshifting their careers. Across race, culture, and socio- economic status, how do we ensure women aren’t forced backwards?
