Big Ideas in Workforce Innovation: A Three-Part Series

The California Workforce Development Board (State Board) has released a three-part series, Big Ideas in Workforce Innovation. The Career Ladders Project documented emerging lessons from key State Board initiatives that promote creative solutions to enhance economic mobility and economic vitality for California’s workers and employers.

“The federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) aims to promote individual and regional economic growth “through innovation in, and alignment and improvement of, employment, training, and education programs.” More so than in the past, today’s workforce development landscape invites practitioners and policymakers to innovate, while aligning the priorities of businesses, communities, and workers, particularly individuals who face barriers to employment. What is innovative on the workforce development frontier, and what can be learned from these innovations?”
