About Building Workforce Partnerships 2014: Shared Prosperity
At this year’s conference, we want to take a look at the kinds of state, regional and local workforce partnerships that support a shared prosperity. While California and the country are experiencing sustained increases in economic activity and employment, the rate of recovery is still only comparable to previous economic revivals. A sustainable and resilient economic future for California and the country’s depends upon a new economic growth model, one that embraces the state and the country’s changing demographics as an asset and results in a shared prosperity for all. Workforce development is critical to making this happen. Join us!!
