In this episode, Jackye flies solo with Michelle Rhee. Michelle Rhee is cofounder of BuildWithin, a software platform that provides employers with the ability to create and manage apprenticeship and employee learning programs covering everything from software development to digital marketing. There are currently more than 40,000 people across the US using the BuildWithin platform.
After nearly 20 years of working in educational nonprofits and later serving as DC’s first Chancellor of the 50,000+ student public school district, Michelle is uniquely familiar with the educational and workforce development needs required by today’s companies – especially as AI transforms the workplace and the cost of a college degree continues to price out the average minimum-wage earner. Michelle is especially passionate about modern tech apprenticeships and how they are being used to bring marginalized people (e.g., people of color, retirees, neuro-diverse, veterans, etc.) into the technology workforce and provide a reliable pathway to the middle class.
