For more than 20 years, we have been an effective catalyst for change. We identify opportunities for innovation in work and learning and provoke transformation in policy and practice. We have worked with dozens of workforce investment boards, state workforce agencies, community-based organizations, and colleges to create lasting impact through their collaborative activities.

Our Economic Opportunity team aims to dramatically increase the attainment of market relevant credentials in order to connect more learners, especially in vulnerable populations, to family-sustaining careers. We help colleges institute policies and practices that increase credential attainment and good employment options for their students. We also contribute to large scale, nationwide adoption of a shared competency-based credentialing agenda while simultaneously helping local, state or national partners test and apply effective competency-based credentialing approaches.

Our Business and Community Innovation team seeks to significantly increase the competitiveness of companies and advance sustainable prosperity in communities through effective partnerships. We focus on policies and practices that support skill development and employment progression by bringing together business and community stakeholders.
