Georgia Budget & Policy Institute (GBPI): A Prosperity Agenda for Georgia’s Workforce Meeting
December 3, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am
The Georgia Budget & Policy Institute (GBPI) is hosting A Prosperity Agenda for Georgia’s Workforce Meeting on Tuesday, December 3rd, from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM, at the Goodwill of North Georgia.
Since the launch of the PROSPER Georgia coalition in March, we have accomplished plenty. Nearly 40 individuals representing 30 organizations across Georgia, including nonprofit workforce providers, employers, philanthropy, state agency leaders, lawmakers, and advocacy organizations are coming to the coalition table to strengthen policies, programs, and investments that improve access to all forms of high-quality career training for individuals with low incomes – short-term credential programs, technical college and beyond. In the spring, PROSPER was hitting the airwaves to turn up the volume on the need to scale investments in skills training. And this summer, the coalition “Followed the Money” to understand how Georgia funds workforce development, specifically for short-term non-degree credentials that can lead to high quality career pathways.
For the final meeting of 2019, the coalition will launch the coalition’s first set of strategic priorities for 2020. Click here to register.
