Navigating the labor market in a strange time

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic ushered in an acute employment crisis, characterized by high unemployment, low labor force participation, general uncertainty, and innovative leaps. Less than 3 years later, we are now in an environment characterized by labor shortages, low unemployment and inflation. This presentation uses data to inform the story about how we moved from one crisis to another in a short period of time to inform what we might expect to see in the future.


Anneliese is a regional labor economist with the Washington State Employment Security Department, a position she has held since February 2010. Her region includes King, Snohomish, Whatcom, Skagit, Island and San Juan Counties. Anneliese works closely with economic and workforce development partners, media, businesses and others throughout the North and Central Puget Sound region and statewide, providing local labor market intelligence to help inform strategic decision-making.

In addition to her work with the state, Anneliese serves on a number of boards and advisory committees including the Pacific Northwest Regional Economic Conference (PNREC), the Seattle Economics Council, the Skagit Population Health Trust, and the Border Policy Research Institute, as well as several K-12 CTE and college workforce advisory committees (including Shoreline School district and Shoreline Community College).

Anneliese holds a Ph.D. in Economic Geography and a Master’s degree in Applied Economics, both from the State University of New York at Buffalo.

In-person RSVP's needed no later than Friday, February 3rd to reserve your spot.

Member pricing: $25

Non-member pricing: $30

Lunch will be a pasta buffet with both gluten free and vegetarian options available.
