Webinar: Partnerships for Successful and Inclusive Workforce EcosystemsIn this webinar, join the National Clean Energy Workforce Alliance to learn about partnership models that work well for employers, training providers, and community-based organizations serving diverse workers and other key stakeholders.
The National Clean Energy Workforce Alliance is the sole forum uniting stakeholders across the United States’ clean energy economy to improve recruitment, education, and placement outcomes, and ensure that the clean energy transition is inclusive of diverse and underserved communities.
Since January 2022, the Alliance has convened more than 500 employers, education and training providers, organized labor, community-based and energy justice organizations, workforce program designers and funders, and policymakers. With the goal of defining actionable solutions to shared workforce challenges, the Alliance has collectively identified and shared challenges, best practices, resources, and key information through structured, results-oriented meetings.
The rapid growth in the clean energy industries requires qualified and diverse workers. To help develop that pipeline, coordinated and inclusive educational offerings and effective connections to employers are needed. In this webinar, learn about partnership models that work well for employers, training providers, and community-based organizations serving diverse workers and other key stakeholders. These models increase the pace of successful implementation for the clean energy transition and improve ongoing communication about labor demand, skills needed in the workplace, job placement processes, and educational opportunities.
