About this event

The Career Impact Bond is a new tool for upskilling and training workers and it shows great promise in helping our country make an equitable economic recovery from the pandemic. It’s a student-first income-share agreement that aims to build pathways to jobs in high-growth fields such as IT, health care, and green energy, and give more people a chance at economic mobility.

In partnership with excellent training providers and backed by catalytic capital, Social Finance is helping students access in-demand training without paying tuition upfront. Students are upskilling in the current environment through remote training and they’re landing good jobs. The first-ever Career Impact Bond is a coding bootcamp run by General Assembly and supported by impact investors and philanthropies.

Join Jim Shelton, the chief investment and impact officer at Blue Meridian Partners, in conversation with a General Assembly Career Impact Bond graduate, along with Jake Schwartz, CEO at General Assembly and Tracy Palandjian, CEO at Social Finance, as they discuss this new tool for equitable access to education and training.
