- Skills Mismatch
The Skills in the State Forum convenes state and local leaders from across the country who are working to bring skills training opportunities to more people through policy changes in their states.
Across the country, people are striving to move into living wage jobs and improve their economic circumstances. Meanwhile, businesses are looking for new ways to grow a skilled and diverse workforce in order to compete in a rapidly changing and increasingly global economy. Policy makers have the chance to support people’s aspirations and boost business growth through inclusive workforce development policies. Advocates in NSC’s State networks play a pivotal role in influencing these policies across states, and have an opportunity to advance principles that ensure those disproportionally impacted are served.
