Donna Klein was among the speakers at the “Working For Change” public policy forum Friday, May 16, at the U.S. Capitol. Joining Donna were Corporate Voices board members Steve Wing, Director, Government Programs, CVS and David Paulsen, U.S. Human Resources Director, Accenture. Andy Chaves, Director for Workforce, Effectiveness and Diversity at Marriott International, a Corporate Voices corporate partner, also participated.

“Working for Change” is a monthly policy briefing to develop a consensus economic mobility agenda for low-wage workers. The series is sponsored by the Community Service Society of New York (CSS), one of the nation’s oldest not-for-profit organizations examining issues of poverty, and coordinated by CSS Senior Policy Fellow, Dr. William Spriggs, chairman of the Department of Economics at Howard University.

The May 16 forum marked the first anniversary of this series and focused on moving disconnected youth into the workforce
