Job quality is important for worker well-being. However, some occupations are not as high quality as others, and quality employment is distributed unevenly by race and gender.

Join the Urban Institute for a discussion on job quality and equity. Urban researchers will present a job quality benchmark that is linked to occupations and share findings on how Black women and men, Latinx women and men, and white women and men are represented into occupations with high and lower quality scores. The research evidence will be followed by a panel discussion with experts who will share their thoughts on how to improve job quality data, enhance the quality of occupations overall, and ensure equitable access to good employment.
