As anyone in state and local government will tell you, government agencies and workforce investment boards have a greater responsibility today than in the past to encourage and help implement workforce initiatives that spur economic development.
In October 2013, Governing hosted a summit of state and local leaders, educational leaders and workforce development experts from the public sector to discuss strategies for developing local workforce initiatives and driving economic growth. During the “Strong Talent Drives Strong Economies” summit, attendees shared best practices and innovative programs for collaboration among government, education, nonprofit and business sectors to create workforce development opportunities.
