Preparing Workers for the Expanding Digital Economy

August 2018
Jordana Barton

Access to broadband is vital for upward mobility, yet innovations in connectivity are not available to all Americans. This chapter by the Dallas Fed from Investing in America’s Workforce: Improving Outcomes for Workers and Employers explores how digital inclusion increases access to jobs and economic opportunity.

The Investing in America’s Workforce book is a result of an ongoing collaboration between the Federal Reserve System, the Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University, the Ray Marshall Center at the University of Texas and the W.E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research. It includes the voices of over 100 contributing authors who share research, best practices and resources in workforce development.
