On June 12, 2019, from 2:00 to 3:30 pm (EDT), the Self-Sufficiency Research Clearinghouse (SSRC) hosted a free webinar entitled Pathways to High-Quality Jobs for Young Adults. The webinar explored: (1) which job characteristics are relevant to measuring job quality, (2) how education, training, and work-related experiences across the lifespan may contribute to job quality at age 29, and (3) the ways in which interventions and policies can support youth from disadvantaged backgrounds to gain higher quality jobs. The webinar featured report authors Martha Ross from the Brookings Institution and Dr. Kristin Anderson Moore and Dr. Kelly Murphy from Child Trends, along with Dr. Patricia McGuire of Trinity Washington University, who discussed the application of this research to youth education and employment practices. Dr. Kristin Abner of the SSRC facilitated the conversation.
