Join the Greater Baltimore Committee and Associated Black Charities as we release an innovative new report that details the many opportunities that exist in Baltimore for current or aspiring middle-skill STEM workers.

Baltimore residents face significant barriers to employment that prevent many from obtaining well-paying jobs. However, there is great opportunity within the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields for workers to progress into well-paying, middle-skill jobs through additional educational opportunities.

Through interviews with dozens of local employers, nonprofit organizations, and community groups, the GBC and ABC are highlighting six “Opportunity Sectors” that provide great potential for Baltimore’s residents to gain and advance in meaningful employment. While some sectors have career pathways built in, there are many opportunities to bolster existing pathways and to create new ones.

Join us as we unveil our report presented by Chris Seals of Field Guide Consulting, a national labor economist, and hear from employers, training service providers, and employees about how we can create new opportunities for more Baltimore residents.
