Jerelyn Rodriguez: Job Training and Racial Equity
Manage episode 316587647 series 2916135
Jerelyn Rodriguez started out as a teacher, but even in her early career years she saw a need for change. Students from low-income and underserved communities often found themselves left out of the college track, and she wanted to do something about it. She’s now co-founder and CEO of The Knowledge House, a nonprofit that has trained hundreds of students for well-paying careers in technology fields and is well on its way to going national. On this episode of Hey, Boss Lady, she talks with hosts Andrea Goeglein and Kristi Atwater about her work.
