Over the last decade, numerous state and local workforce systems have worked to align and organize their strategies and service delivery around targeted industry sectors and the workforce needs of employers in those sectors. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) places significant emphasis upon industry sector strategies that are informed by real-time labor market analysis and high-quality labor market information (LMI).


Join this interactive Peer Learning Exchange, sponsored by the Employment and Training Administration's Real-Time LMI Technical Assistance project, to learn how you can better leverage both traditional and real-time LMI to design and advance strategies for target industry sectors in your state or region.

The session will be co-facilitated by project partners Lesley Hirsch, Director of the New York City Labor Market Information Service (NYCLMIS) and Board Member of the LMI Institute, and Jeremy Kelley, Senior Program Manager with Jobs for the Future, both of whom bring expertise in the use of LMI to enhance industry sector-driven policies, strategies, and services. The Peer Learning Exchange will be dialogue-based, so come ready with your thoughts, questions, and technical assistance needs!
