July 2, 2019 — Today the U.S. Census Bureau convened the Investing in the American Workforce workshop, which focused on creating data-driven digital products for workers, businesses, investors and communities.

Participants representing government, industry, academia, community organizers and partners collaborated and shared ideas on four critical workforce challenges facing the public:

  • Catalyzing investment in Opportunity Zones.
  • Modernizing talent discovery.
  • Supporting entrepreneurship.
  • Helping workers leverage multiple pathways for career growth.

This workshop kicks off the first 2019 technology sprint of The Opportunity Project (TOP). TOP is a unique and innovative accelerator program within the Census Bureau that matches tech companies, universities, government and communities together to translate open data into useful digital products for the public.
