About this event

Join us for the fifth session in our 2021 Rural Funders Series for a discussion on the intersection between rural funders, rural communities and the future of work. 

The future of rural America is dependant on a diverse, sustainable and high functioning workforce. Because of this, practitioners, researchers and funders are joining together to identify gaps and strengthen practices to bolster this workforce. In this session, our group of rural leaders from across the country will have a conversation about how to better support rural students on an individual, cohort and statewide basis in an effort to enhance the way rural America supports the next generation of workers.
