Danielle DiMartino Booth What’s Next Poverty Education Reskilling

Danielle DiMartino Booth, CEO and chief strategist of Quill Intelligence, said the coronavirus recession creates a chance to fix the job skills shortage. She said Congress should invest in a reskilling program that provides educational opportunities to highly skilled workers in the oil and energy industries, which suffered harshly during the pandemic. Booth suggests addressing economic inequality by bringing back trade-based learning and by ensuring new mothers stay in the workforce.
