Introducing the Pathways to Work Evidence Clearinghouse

Now more than ever, leaders and operators of programs for job seekers with low incomes need evidence on the interventions and strategies that can help their clients succeed in the labor market. We invite you to the unveiling of the Pathways to Work Evidence Clearinghouse, a new resource funded by the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) in the Administration for Children & Families (ACF) that has been designed to meet the needs of employment service providers and support the use of evidence-based practices.

On Wednesday, July 15, from 2:00 p.m.–3:30 p.m. (ET), we will conduct a virtual tour of the Pathways Clearinghouse website. After the tour, we will discuss how the site:

Provides free, reliable, and accessible information about what works to help job seekers with low incomes find and sustain employment
Identifies interventions designed to improve employment outcomes, reduce employment challenges, and support self-sufficiency for people with low incomes
Offers a useful tool for making decisions about interventions and services
The launch event will feature a discussion with an expert panel to explore how Pathways can be a useful tool for employment service providers. We will also explore how the COVID-19 pandemic has influenced the way providers of employment services search for evidence and can use the Pathways Clearinghouse as a new resource. Join us for this free-of-charge virtual event and discover how this accessible and reliable tool can support program leaders and policymakers who work to improve employment and economic outcomes for families.

Expert Panel:

Naomi Goldstein, OPRE’s Deputy Assistant Secretary for Planning, Research, and Evaluation
Kimberly Clum, the Pathways Clearinghouse Project Officer, OPRE
Alejandra Montoya-Boyer, Associate program director, National Association of Counties
Ella Gifford-Hawkins, Administrator, Larimer County Works Program
