Partners Council Regional Strategy Map Output from the Partners Council August 30 meeting


EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Roughly one dozen one-on-one interviews followed by a day-long Aug. 30, 2016, Regional Prosperity Strategy Workshop have yielded a working draft for the Partners Council Regional Strategy Map with a clearly defined mission of growing and maintaining a workforce that meets the needs of southwest Alabama.

The long-range goal of the Partners Council is to create a seamless exchange of information and resources that marshals all of southwest Alabama’s workforce development expertise and then aligns it with relevant education and training program, buoys it with access to social service assistance and facilitates its implementation with access to appropriate funding mechanisms.

The first draft of the Partners Council Regional Strategy Map focuses specifically on building healthy communities, providing relevant education and facilitating a robust economy – the three key tenets identified as comprising the full workforce development spectrum.

This effort incorporates and reflects the input of and anticipated roles of regional community partners, dedicated to providing not only employers with a pool of qualified candidates but residents with opportunities for development, employment and career advancement.
