Thousands of our neighbors are unemployed or under-employed, languishing in low-wage jobs that don’t enable them to reach their full potential. Join us to examine proven strategies that open up pathways into meaningful careers with family-sustaining wages.
Together we’ll explore:
- What are the key elements of successful training programs that empower low-income and unemployed workers with the skills, knowledge, and connections needed to pursue in-demand careers?
- How can businesses and nonprofits partner in new ways to build the 21st century workforce that our community needs?
- How can private philanthropy foster innovation and build bridges between businesses, government, and nonprofits in order to take effective solutions to scale?

About the Funders' Roundtable of Montgomery County
The Funders’ Roundtable free lunch events provide representatives of local companies and foundations with an opportunity to get acquainted, learn more about Montgomery County funding priorities, and share best practices. The events are open to grantmakers only, and have anywhere from 15 to 30 attendees. Each luncheon focuses on a different funding topic – education, health care, etc.—selected in advance by the group.
Lunch is provided courtesy of our 2015 sponsors: The Community Foundation for the National Capital Region in Montgomery County, Mead Family Foundation, Jim and Carol Trawick Foundation, and The Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers.
