EARNS Act: Apprenticeships and Training for the 21st Century

In today’s increasingly competitive global economy, Americans need expanded access to training and industry-recognized certification in a number of fields, including technology. To strengthen workforce development and skills training, a bipartisan group of Senators recently introduced the Effective Apprenticeships Rebuild National Skills—EARNS Act (S. 2945).

Join Voices for Innovation for a webinar focused on how the EARNS Act will update and expand our nation’s apprenticeship system, as well as support pre-apprenticeship programs. We’ll hear from key Senate staff as well as Bill Kamela, Microsoft’s Senior Policy Director for Education. We’ll discuss prospects for this legislation and how you can help advance this important policy initiative.
