Good Jobs: Why Energy Companies Need to Pay Attention

Date/Time: Tuesday, June 4th, 2:00 – 3:00 PM ET

Register here

Energy companies offer great wages and benefits, but the market is changing, as are expectations for the future of work. Compensation and benefits are just not enough anymore, especially in today’s competitive talent acquisition landscape. The U.S. Department of Commerce and U.S. Department of Labor’s Good Job Principles identify eight components of “good jobs” that are the foundation of an equitable economy that lifts up workers and families and makes businesses more competitive. These principles will continue to take center stage in workforce development conversations, decisions about business partnerships including those with whom companies engage for a supplemental workforce, and in what job-seekers and communities expect from employers. In fact, this area of focus will be a trending priority in 2024 and beyond.  Join us for this session by one of the architects of the Good Job Principles, Lauren Starks, formerly at Commerce and now serves as the director of Good Companies/Good Jobs, an initiative of the Aspen Institute Economic Opportunities Program. Together we will explore how these principles can be applied to energy careers and why they are critical to ensure the industry attracts and retains top-tier talent.

National Energy and Natural Resources Career Cluster Feedback

Date/Time: Tuesday, June 11th, 2:00 – 3:00 PM ET

Register here

On June 6th, Advance CTE is expected to publish recommendations for the establishment of a national energy career cluster. If approved, this long-awaited action will make it much easier for energy curriculum to be adopted in the nation’s school systems, exposing today’s learners to tomorrow’s energy career.

In anticipation of this expected action, CEWD will host a webinar on June 11 at 2:00 – 3:00 PM ET to review proposed language, discuss industry action that may be suggested, and address what this opportunity will mean for bringing greater awareness of energy and its career paths to students.

The session will be led by CEWD’s Director of Workforce Development, Kristie Kelley, who has served on an advisory committee to Advance CTE as they have considered whether energy education has a role in the nation’s classrooms.
