Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao will join the Biden Institute for a roundtable discussion title "Choosing a Future of Quality Jobs," hosted by former Vice President Joseph Biden Jr.

The discussion will identify both opportunities and challenges faced by the U.S. economy and how jobs can be created to "support a growing middle class," according to an event description.

Additional speakers include Byron Auguste, president and co-founder of Opportunity@Work and former National Economic Council adviser in the Obama administration, and Penny Pritzker, chairman of PSP Capital Partners and Pritzker Realty Group and former secretary of commerce under former President Barack Obama.

The event is scheduled for Sept. 19 at the University of Delaware's Newark campus.
