Domestic Public Policy

Supporting America’s Workforce: A Policy Lab Initiative

Grant Year: 2021


Brent Orrell will direct the research program of a policy lab focused on identifying pathways for people to build the skills they need to gain employment and move up the socioeconomic ladder. The lab will address topics such as how best to prepare individuals for careers in science, technology, and engineering, and the effectiveness of programs to help older individuals who have lost their jobs reconnect to employment. The lab’s findings will be presented in a series of reports, papers, and policy briefs.
