Business Leaders United for Workforce Partnerships (BLU), an initiative of the National Skills Coalition, is comprised of employers from a range of industries across the nation who are concerned about our nation’s skills gap, who are working with local partners to train and hire community residents for skilled jobs, and who want our country’s policymakers to follow suit and invest, aggressively and effectively, in the skills of America’s workers. BLU provides a common platform from which these diverse business leaders can jointly communicate to national policymakers, the press and the American public about the effective industry-based strategies they’ve developed which could serve as models for a more comprehensive national skills policy.
The purpose of BLU Georgia is to harness the voice of industry to inform state policy proposals while driving federal policy innovation. As part of a State Affiliate Network, BLU Georgia will help connect our state with best practices from across the nation for adopting skills policies that directly address the skills needs of industry.
