Stislow Design, in partnership with CUNY Research Foundation’s LMIS, designed a suite of career pathway resources for The Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment to support their workforce and educational initiatives in film, television, theater, music, publishing, advertising and digital content. The project includes building out the first three career pathways mini site and producing related print brochures. Anxiously awaiting launch of live site by NYC.
Stislow Design is proud to have worked with SDSN USA on their newest project in conjunction with the National Center for Faith Based Initiatives and Howard University: Never More Urgent: A Preliminary Review of How the U.S. is Leaving Black, Hispanic and Indigenous Communities Behind. This report examines how well the United States, and US states in particular, serve communities of color by using the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a tool for evaluating performance.
This report has been produced at the request of the National Center for Faith Based Initiatives (NCFBI) via a collaboration between researchers from SDSN USA (Alainna Lynch and Caroline Fox), and Howard University (Dr. Helen Bond and Dr. Clarence Lusane) with Earl Hamilton (NCFBI).

New initiatives to serve over 13,000 young New Yorkers with employment, training, and education support in the face of economic downturn
Accompanying these announcements is a new report by the citywide Disconnected Youth Task Force, entitled Connecting Our Future, which focuses attention on New York City’s population of out-of-school/out-of-work (OSOW) 16 to 24-year-olds. Originally convened in 2019, the Task Force updated its original analysis to account for an expected spike in OSOW as a result of job losses and educational disruptions in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. This report will serve as the City’s strategic plan to serve this population.
“The coronavirus pandemic has caused severe disruptions in education as well as the labor market, with New York City’s young people bearing some of the heaviest costs,” said David Fischer, Executive Director of the NYC Center for Youth Employment. “The Task Force report sets out the importance of making sure our youth and young adults remain engaged in school or work, while offering smart and actionable recommendations for both immediate help and long-term reforms to the full system of career readiness.”
Working with the thoughtful team at Center for Youth Employment and Disconnected Youth Task Force, Stislow Design designed a bright and engaging report and resource conveying the cost of opportunity and the projection of the investment employing the prevention and re-engagement strategies therein.
As said by Stanley Richards, Executive Vice President of The Fortune Society, “There is no wiser an investment than investing in the future of our young people. … We have seen, firsthand, the positive impact that education, job training and work can have on those disenfranchised from society. Connecting Our Future and the initiatives … provide the foundation for a strategic response to engage youth and young adults who are out of school and out of work. The City has, once again, demonstrated its commitment to address the challenges experienced by this fragile population. Fortune is proud to stand with the Mayor, City leaders and my fellow Task Force Members as we take on this enormous task. This is just the beginning. We all need to lean in harder and support our disconnected youth as they navigate a future made even more uncertain by COVID-19 pandemic.”

Stislow Design helps TReNDS launch the 2019 Counting on the World to Act Report.
The importance of their research and data
Eradicating poverty and hunger, ensuring quality education, instituting affordable and clean energy, and more — the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) lay out a broad, ambitious vision for our world. But there is one common denominator that cuts across this agenda: data. Without timely, relevant, and disaggregated data, policymakers and their development partners will be unprepared to turn their promises into reality for communities worldwide. With only eleven years left to meet the goals, it is imperative that we focus on building robust, inclusive, and relevant national data systems to support the curation and promotion of better data for sustainable development. In Counting on the World to Act, TReNDS details an action plan for governments and their development partners that will enable them to help deliver the SDGs globally by 2030. Our recommendations specifically aim to empower government actors — whether they be national statisticians, chief data scientists, chief data officers, ministers of planning, or others concerned with evidence in support of sustainable development — to advocate for, build, and lead a new data ecosystem.
