Policy Wins in Southern States: Lessons learned and implications for workforce advocates

October 02, 2020

Summer 2020 marked the end of National Skills Coalition’s Southern Skills Policy Initiative: our one-year assistance effort with teams in five states – Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas – to advance policies to build a skilled workforce. Through this initiative, NSC was able to achieve significant policy progress in several Southern states.

By listening to this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Learn how workforce policy advocates were able to leverage support from NSC to advance policies in the South, in generally fiscally conservative environments.
  • Hear from the different perspectives of workforce policy advocates and an agency leader about overcoming advocacy challenges and their ideas on tackling the work that remains.
