“Right now, employers are looking for talent and Philly’s got talent,” said Kelvin A. Jeremiah, president  & CEO of PHA. “This is an opportunity for all Philadelphians to find the job that’s waiting for them and to position themselves and their family for economic mobility and financial stability. My hope is everyone will join with us in building an inclusive economy that lifts up everyone in this city. The change we seek starts within each of us.”

Employers or nonprofits that want to join the event should email Marco Ferreira, PHA’s director of workforce development and homeownership programs at [email protected].
