From Atlanta CareerRise:
Atlanta CareerRise is seeking proposals to establish, scale or strengthen the impact of promising industry partnerships in industry sectors that bring together employers, training providers, service providers, and other key stakeholders. These partnerships are intended to help pilot or scale promising efforts to move un- and underemployed individuals toward sustainable wage careers in vibrant and growing local sectors to promote economic mobility while meeting employers’ needs for skilled talent.
Partnerships should incorporate systems change and racial equity goals and offer effective approaches to enable low-skilled incumbent workers and/or job seekers to enter and advance in career pathways leading to family-sustaining wages, and for employers to strengthen and/or advance their existing front-line workforce and cultivate a robust pipeline of entry-level workers.
Atlanta CareerRise has allocated approximately $400,000 towards its 2020-2021 investments into sector partnerships. New this year, all applicants will partner with Metro Atlanta Industry Partnerships (MAIP) and incorporate racial equity into their industry partnership program design to promote economic mobility in the region.
