Business Leaders United for Workforce Partnerships

Commitment by

National Fund for Workforce Solutions, The Joyce Foundation, Corporate Voices for Working Families, National Skills Coalition, Skills for America's Future

In 2011, Skills for America's Future, National Fund for Workforce Solutions, Corporate Voices for Working Families, and National Skills Coalition committed to form Business Leaders United for Workforce Partnerships. This is a new collaboration between four national networks of employers and other stakeholders which are training community residents for unfilled jobs in local industries. Over the next 18 months, with financial support from the Joyce Foundation, these organizations will raise the number of local business partnerships which they have created, financially supported, technically assisted, or otherwise promoted in collaboration with some 2400 employers across 50 states by one-third, to 220 partnerships. They further intend to marshal these diverse business leaders to drive a conversation in Washington about the need for a national skills strategy that leverages corporate, philanthropic and public resources in the replication of such partnerships nationwide.
