The meeting assisted workforce advocates from 11 states in preparing for upcoming state legislative sessions, which for many states include newly sworn in governors and legislators. Through the meeting’s cross-state sharing sessions, participants talked through tactics and policy solutions they could use to address a variety of issues facing employers, practitioners, and policymakers back in their states, such as proportionately investing in skills, connecting training to job quality strategies, and scaling up promising programs.
