A video of Charlotte’ mayor was just broadcasted around the world on the White Houses’ main social media channels.
The video was sent out in conjunction with Charlotte hosting the second American Workforce Policy Advisory Board meeting this week.
In a video, Mayor Lyles said “…In my city of Charlotte, North Carolina, we have people that are coming in and they’re doing great things, they have the education to do financial and technology jobs…but many of the people who built our city, who’ve lived here for a long time, they haven’t had the access to the education or the training necessary for that…”
Yesterday, Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles joined First Daughter Ivanka Trump, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, several CEOs, and state governors for the meeting held in Uptown Charlotte’s Foundation for the Carolinas offices.
The members of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board were selected back in March – Charlotte’s Mayor Lyles was the only mayor in the country to be selected.
The goals of the board include; developing a new national campaign to promote a variety of pathways to career success, modernizing recruitment and training policies, increasing data transparency to match workers with jobs, and enhancing employer-led training investments.
