co-working in erie: a case study of the economic impact of radius co-work and the future of erie county

Jessica Taylor, B.A.

Livestreamed on June 2, 2022

A Raimy Fellows 2021 Presentation by Jessica Taylor
The way we work in the United States has been shifting over the past couple of years and Erie County is no exception. A remote or hybrid work option is becoming a standard requirement for employees of many companies around the nation, not to mention the influx of self-startups we've seen pop up during the pandemic. Erie was rated as one of the top places in Pennsylvania for remote work in 2021. What should we be doing as a community to capitalize on that shift and how can we make Erie a welcoming place for those looking to relocate? Places like Radius CoWork have already laid the groundwork and created a culture that can be looked at as a model to attract and retain the talent we need to see Erie grow and thrive.

Sara Provencio, JD

Livestreamed on March 23, 2022

A Raimy Fellows 2021 Presentation by Sara Provencio 

When your ID card bears a name and gender marker that doesn’t represent you – how do you apply for a job with confidence? The vulnerability felt by any job seeker is that much worse for transgender people who would prefer not to be outed or discriminated against based on their hiring paperwork. This presentation addresses the problem head-on by outlining the process to undergo a legal change of name and gender within the Erie County Court system. With a court order in place, the individual can then update personal identifying documents to match their identity and proceed into the world of work with confidence.  Please click on the bottom below to download the how-to guide.
