Welcome Michael Kushner, BAYWORK’s new manager. His position is funded through a High Road Training Partnership grant, which was awarded to our partners at Jewish Vocational Service. Michael previously served as the Water Pathways Coordinator at Peralta Community College District. Prior to that, he spent 12 years in various management positions at the SEIU Education Fund where he led workforce development programs for employees of Kaiser Permanente, Dignity Health, Alameda Health System and a number of other employers. He has extensive experience working in partnership with community colleges and employers to deliver career training, and helped lead an apprenticeship program for Medical Coders. Michael will be helping us implement BAYWORK’s new Sustainable Business Model. As part of that effort he will be meeting with individual agencies to find ways to increase their engagement with BAYWORK. When he is not working to strengthen our workforce reliability Michael likes to listen to live music and hike with his wife.
Michael can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or (510) 407-7629.
