Urban League Addresses "The Black White Divide"

An estimated 3.3 million young men and women will leave high school in June with -- or without -- a diploma. The speed with which they secure steady employment or a seat in another classroom differs markedly by race. Black high school graduates, for instance, will take 20 percent longer than their white counterparts to land a job lasting six or more months, according to forthcoming research from the Urban Institute.

This forum will provide a first look at the Institute’s new findings on how black and white youth fare in their quest for job or educational security. It will probe the implications for young men and women, the American economic and educational systems, the organizations that seek to help young people make a successful transition to adulthood, and public policies crafted in Washington and state capitals.

PANELISTS:

  • Linda Harris, director of youth policy, Center for Law and Social Policy; former director, Baltimore’s Office of Employment Development
  • Harry Holzer, Institute fellow, Urban Institute; coauthor, Reconnecting Disadvantaged Young Men;former chief economist, U.S. Department of Labor
  • Marla McDaniel, research associate, Center on Labor, Human Services, and Population, Urban Institute
  • Margaret Simms, Institute fellow and director of the Low-Income Working Families project, Urban Institute (moderator)
  • William Spriggs, assistant secretary for policy, U.S. Department of Labor

 

At the Urban Institute
2100 M Street N.W., 5th Floor, Washington, D.C.

Lunch will be provided at 11:45 a.m. The forum begins promptly at noon.
