18 Apr Hope Street Group 2013 Jobs & Workforce Development Executive Summary and Next Steps
A summary and synthesis of the Jobs & Workforce Development group’s proceedings during Hope Street Group’s annual Colloquium.
Hope Street Group assembled a group of 40 leaders from diverse sectors— including large and small employers, training and post-secondary education institutions, civic and youth organizations, labor unions, philanthropic foundations, technology entrepreneurs, and experienced policymakers—to catalyze a better workforce system. Since January 2013, this group has worked to create a vision for the mutually reinforcing elements of a New American Skills System and initial recommendations on how to make this vision a reality. This document lays out ideas for how to translate these insights into broad action and should serve as a starting place for us to problem-solve together.
