Bullock selected member of CSG national task force subcommittee

HARRISBURG, May 7 – State Rep. Donna Bullock, D-Phila., has been selected to participate on a subcommittee of The Council of State Governments’ national Future of Work Task Force.

“The CSG Future of Work Task Force will bring together a diverse group of state officials to explore how states can best navigate the challenges and opportunities of the new economy,” CSG Executive Director David Adkins said. “The task force will examine how technology creates new jobs and eliminates existing jobs, and it will share success stories and best practices and provide guidance on how states can best embrace the innovative and ever-evolving opportunities in the new economy.”

Bullock will serve as a member of the Equity and Inclusion Subcommittee. The subcommittee will explore how states can promote and encourage equity and inclusion in the new economy by examining and addressing issues and barriers that underserved communities face.

“I’m beyond excited to take the reins and get to work on just how we support inclusive and diverse job and career growth,” Bullock said. “Ever since I came to the legislature, I have been working to ensure that everyone, no matter their race, gender or economic standing, has the same opportunities to succeed, and this Task Force will only give me more tools to advance these policies.”

Bullock serves as vice chairwoman of the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus and secretary of the Pennsylvania House Urban Affairs Committee, in addition to membership on several other committees. She continues to advocate and sponsor legislation for women and people of color in government to encourage equal representation.

The work of the task force will take place across a two-year timeline with key findings and recommendations studied and shared during task force meetings, some of which will be held at the annual CSG national conferences.

In addition to the Equity and Inclusion Subcommittee, the other subcommittees are The Workforce of Tomorrow; Smart Government; and What’s Next? Embracing the Future. Each subcommittee has two co-chairmen and 10 members.

“CSG is proud of its role as a trusted convener of state officials and is committed to a data-driven, consensus-based process in all of its public policy work,” said Kelley Arnold, CSG chief communications officer.
