Bringing together state and community college leaders with workforce and industry partners to collaboratively identify and scale strategies that give workers the skills necessary to succeed in an economy reshaped by the pandemic.
The National Governors Association’s (NGA) Reskilling and Recovery Network will strive to address the equity disparities that have only increased during the economic and health crisis.
Through the network, participating states will:
- Engage with a collaborative network of like-minded state leaders to strategize economic and workforce recovery on a regular basis;
- Receive early access to innovative tools designed by peers in the field and be paired with experts engaged by the NGA Center and American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), and
- Have access to technical assistance including webinars, facilitated peer-to-peer learning, virtual state site visits and more.
- Re-engaging employers in partnering with community colleges to train and hire new employees, prioritizing jobs that pay a living wage or more.
