A Model for Successful Regional Sector Partnerships
Successful sector partnerships effectively engage and organize multiple stakeholders from the educational, workforce development, and employer communities.
The Academy’s field work has revealed a series of successful regional partnerships that can serve as models of the “best practices” for building and sustaining regional partnerships and organizing to both meet the needs of employers and to extend opportunities to job seekers and incumbent workers.
The following model summarizes what the Academy has learned about the prerequisites for building and sustaining a regional sector partnership.
The Academy team has profiled three successful regional partnerships that have put these principles into action and built durable and effective regional partnerships that are making a real difference for their members, their regions, and the people they serve.
