What's a Sector Partnership?

Sector partnerships are partnerships of business leaders, from the same industry and in a shared labor market region, who work with education, workforce development, economic development, and community organizations to address the workforce and other competitiveness needs of their industry.

How Do I Start a Partnership?

Businesses from any industry can form a sector partnership. All you need is an organization or company to volunteer to convene C-suite business leaders within an industry who share a common need. The agenda is defined by business leaders, addressing the specific issues that matter most to their industry in their region. Sector Partnerships focus on issues that no single company can fully tackle on its own and that require a collaborative approach.
