A Sneak Peek at Communicating with Machines: Empowering Low-Wage Workers with Cyber Soft Skills
Conversations about low-wage work and technological advancements have historically been on separate tracks. Yet, as digital tools continue to change the way we work, low-wage workers are expected to arrive in the workplace with the cyber soft skills that will allow them to learn and adapt to a growing number of digital interfaces. What supports are available to workers looking to build these skills? How can the workforce development community, funders, and the City work together to ensure that all workers have the skills they need to succeed? Our full report examining these questions, written in partnership with The HOPE Program, will be released this month, but we’re giving you a sneak peek at our findings and recommendations! Check out a synopsis of Communicating with Machines. Stay tuned for information on its release and a webinar where we’ll dive into details of the report.

Happy Birthday to Us!
We can hardly believe it, but we turned 10 years old this week. While this year has been different in so many ways from the first nine, our commitment to advancing the missions of our clients is stronger than ever. As we reflect on a decade’s worth of projects and milestones, we also look forward to the future. We are excited to see where this subway train takes us in the next ten years. We thank all our clients, partners, and colleagues, past and present, for your continued support. Here’s to many more years of collaboration designing the systems and policies that drive thriving communities.

What We’re Doing.
#PublicWorksGivesBack is Back
Our annual #PublicWorksGivesBack campaign is live. Our giving campaign stems from our mission to help organizations increase their impact, advance their missions, and build stronger communities that work for all. Through #PublicWorksGivesBack, we support the missions of our nonprofit clients, and match employee donations to any registered 501(c)3 organization from now through the end of the year. Catch us on Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn to learn about some of the incredible organizations our team is supporting.
A Different Kind of December
December normally means that we’re busy attending holiday parties and year-end benefits to support our clients and partners and celebrate the work of the past year. While we won’t be able to come together in person this year, we are still excited to celebrate the Human Services Council’s Changemakers of New York on December 9th and Professional Women in Construction’s 40th Anniversary on December 10th. We hope to see you there!
