We’re thrilled to announce CEO Lindsay Blumer was asked to speak on Comcast’s Newsmakers during the 2024 National Skills Coalition Summit! This esteemed program highlights leaders making a difference across various industries.

In the interview, Blumber discussed WRTP | BIG STEP’s ongoing commitment to bridging the nation’s skills gap by exposing young people to exciting career opportunities in the skilled trades.

“People don’t recognize that there are a multitude of occupations within manufacturing and in construction,” Blumer stated. She went on to highlight our Summer Trades Academy and Certified Pre-Apprenticeship programs. These initiatives are not only building a strong talent pipeline, but they’re also fostering a more diverse workforce. 70% of participants in our programs identify as people of color, and over 20% identify as women, far outpacing the industry average.
