MWA has prepared a report setting out our workforce vision and recommendations for the incoming Healey-Driscoll Administration. We seek to work collaboratively with the incoming administration to create a nation-leading and forward-thinking workforce system. A system that is: regionally-led and employer-driven, inclusive and equitable, innovative and agile, data driven, and well-aligned with other state systems.
Our recommendations, which are explained in more detail in the report, include:
- Investing in modern data systems;
- Making workforce data public and accessible;
- Prioritizing collaboration between local and state-level parts of the system; and
- Establishing two new workforce funds to support capacity and innovation.
MWA will be using this report to advocate for system improvements as the Healey-Driscoll Administration takes office and as the 2023-2024 Legislative Session begins.
