    3RD ANNUAL OHIO URBAN RESOURCES SYSTEM CONFERENCE
    Let’s Get Back to Work

    October 24-26, 2018
    Renaissance Toledo Downtown | 444 N. Summit Street | Toledo, OH 43604

    The Ohio Urban Resources System (O.U.R.S.) is a statewide network comprised of ten Community Action Agencies in Akron, Canton, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Erie- Huron-Richland, Lorain, Youngstown, Toledo and Trumbull. O.U.R.S seeks to strengthen the social and economic security of families and their communities as a recognized leading resource for breaking the poverty cycle in Ohio.

    According to the BLS current population survey (CPS), the unemployment rate for Ohio fell 0.1 percentage points in March 2018 to 4.4%. The state unemployment rate was 0.3 percentage points higher than the national rate for the month. The jobless rate inched down despite Ohio losing jobs because the unemployment rate and increase or decrease in jobs are based on different measures.

    While Ohio’s rural and urban communities share roller coaster statistics, research by Policy Matters Ohio uncovered many urban counties still show unique challenges in areas of broken union structures, race disparities, unemployment compensation and quality job training to name a few.

    The 3rd Annual Ohio Urban Resources System Conference, “Let’s Get Back to Work” will focus on ready-to-work strategies by matching skilled workers with career employment and eliminating workforce barriers in Ohio’s urban communities. Workshop presenters will provide strategies and tools required to place individuals and families in employment that provides livable wages, creating cradle to career pathways and diversifying the work pool with innovative entrepreneurial and social enterprise ventures.
