Improving occupational mobility: Adults without a four-year college degree have difficulty securing jobs that offer a living wage and upward mobility. Nearly 70% of new jobs in the U.S. require a bachelor’s degree, however, fewer than 50% of workers have a four-year degree. Shimano will work with Professor Mitchell Stevens and employees in Stanford University’s Residential and Dining Services and Land, Buildings, and Real Estate units to gain insights about and design education, training, internship and fellowship programs for members of the university that create opportunities for job mobility.
