Unlocking Job Progressions
The Rework America Alliance is a national collaboration advancing opportunities for millions of unemployed and low wage workers to move into good jobs. The focus of the Alliance is to provide help for people who have built capabilities through experience but do not have a bachelor’s degree – particularly people of color and women as they have been disproportionately affected by the economic crisis.

UnidosUS Partnership with the Markle Foundation
Rework America Alliance’s goal is to advance opportunities for millions of unemployed and low wage workers by opening opportunities for people of color and helping those who have built capabilities through experience but without a bachelor’s degree.
The work will focus on:
- Identifying and sharing promising, relevant job progressions
- Identifying and sharing high-quality training programs
- Sharing tools and training resources to help career coaches and other support specialists connect job seekers to good jobs
- Driving the adoption of inclusive sourcing and hiring practices
- Sharing tools and training resources for hiring managers and human resource specialists that will support skills-based hiring
UnidosUS joins this initiative by the Markle Foundation to impact Latinx job seekers. This is a partnership between civil rights organizations, nonprofits, private sector employers, labor unions, educators, and others, including the UnidosUS Affiliate Network.
The Alliance Employer Toolkit
The Employer Toolkit is a comprehensive resource for employers when shifting to a skills-based approach for their job sourcing, postings, and hiring processes. A series of implementation tools and resources have been developed to make it easier for employers to adopt inclusive sourcing and hiring practices.
