Join us for a community discussion among workforce development practitioners, leaders and stakeholders from the social services, nonprofit, education, labor, business and government sectors about the regional work that is currently being undertaken in workforce development.
These efforts include regional planning, coordination and workforce development services provided by the seven Workforce Development Boards within Los Angeles County and their partners through several State of California initiatives including the Slingshot, High Road Partnerships, and Accelerator grant funds.
The State of California funding and efforts seek to underwrite work that will push progress in achieving the three objectives of 1) demand skills attainment, 2) upward mobility of workers, and 3) equity for individuals with barriers to employment.
This forum discussion will review an assessment tool provided by the State to gauge the level of success in these regional efforts.
We invite you to join the discussion and share your assessment of how well the regional workforce development system is doing in this work. You will be invited to share opinions on the topics raised.
The discussion of this forum will also cover and briefly the effort to align resources to better serve the re-entry, formerly incarcerated and justice involved populations.
This is one of five forums sponsored by the City of Los Angeles Workforce Development Board and the City of Los Angeles Economic and Workforce Development Department. This forum is part of the larger set of 16 forums being conducted simultaneously by the seven Workforce Development Boards serving all of Los Angeles County.
BACKGROUND ON THESE FORUMS: The 8 forums on reentry and workforce services are part of state and local efforts to improve California criminal and juvenile justice systems by reducing recidivism through increased rehabilitation. The 8 forums specifically regarding a self-assessment of the regional workforce development efforts will seek to gather information to help improve alignment and coordination of workforce development services.
The input from these sessions are designed to help develop a regional workforce development strategy for investments in career pathways, and services at the network of WorkSource Centers/America's Job Centers of California, YouthSource Centers, and the HIRE LA's Youth Employment program. This regional workforce plan seeks to improve services and programs to better train and assist workers in employment/careers and to assist employers find and hire qualified, trained and work-ready candidates.
