We Understand common needs through timely research on economic and industry trends critical to the region. While specific technical skills differ from one sector to the next, the core skills of a strong workforce are universal.
Together we share a single, powerful voice to communicate needs to the education and workforce development communities. Working together as a cohesive group provides a greater and more effective means to address workforce challenges and open up opportunities that businesses cannot afford to pursue individually.
We are influencing education and training by providing feedback to schools about the skills required to successfully enter into in-demand occupations, so they can offer training programs that reflect real-time market needs to ensure a well-qualified pool of graduates who possess specific competencies desired by industry. Provide recommendations to generate career pathways that promote high-wage career opportunities.
