What’s new: This past week was National Apprenticeship Week in the U.S., which showcases the successes and value of registered apprenticeship programs for rebuilding the economy, advancing racial and gender equity and supporting underserved communities.

A Chicago event on Nov. 14 featured First Lady of the United States Jill Biden, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo, U.S. Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh and U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona. Aon CEO Greg Case, Secretary Walsh, and executives from JP Morgan Chase Co., McDonald’s, United Airlines, Walgreens Boots Alliance and others participated in a roundtable discussion on the importance of apprenticeships and ways to continue to scale the apprenticeship model among more employers, giving even more people greater access to sustainable careers—with paid training to be successful. You can watch a livestream of the event here, including remarks from Aon Apprentice Terionna Wilson.
