Sector strategies and career pathways are two key strategies that help address the pressing workforce challenges facing employers in regional economies, while assisting workers in getting skills that are valued by industry.

Description

Local Workforce Development Boards and their partners across the country are now working to determine how these approaches fit together, as the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) places a strong focus on regional implementation of both strategies.  This Peer Learning Group call will offer WDBs and their partners a chance to share promising practices as well challenges in aligning these strategies in their local areas.   A local WDB that has successfully integrated sector strategies and career pathways will discuss key steps and lessons learned from their efforts.
