Join your peers for USDOL-ETA's 2nd Annual week-long Sector Strategies Virtual Institute on advancing sector work! This event will include leading state and local practitioners who have formed high-performing sector strategies and will drill down deep into the latest challenges and innovative solutions:
  • “Regionalizing” your already successful local sector partnership
  • Moving beyond engaging business: to business as a lead
  • Designing career pathways - and apprenticeships and work-based learning – at an industry-level scale
  • Sustaining and measuring successful sector approaches
  • Defining a state's role in seeding regional sector partnerships

This year the event will include “101” sessions designed for beginners and “201” sessions for those more advanced. This innovative event will combine both large core plenary sessions and small-group interactive workshops.
