The CWDC is providing coaching and action planning for implementing talent equity strategies for organizations in four stakeholder groups: education, workforce and economic development, community-based organizations, and business/industry.
Registration is now open for the inaugural Colorado Virtual Career Fair on April 19-22. The CWDC State Youth Council is searching for career panelists, youth attendees, parents, and educators for the event.
The CWDC added career pathways in the public health industry to My Colorado Journey this month. The public health pathways include opportunities in public health, environmental health, and administration, and were developed in partnership with the Trailhead Institute, the Colorado Public Health Workforce Collaborative, and other state agency partners.
In 2018, the CWDC released $350,000 in grants to Colorado’s local workforce areas to scale a promising practice or test a new model of service delivery that maximizes efficiency in serving customers. Three local workforce areas received Workforce Innovation Grants, and these resources highlight the innovative practices developed to help others replicate the successful practices.
The CWDC is now accepting individual and team applications to participate in a virtual Convener Cohort technical assistance module. Applications must be submitted by March 12.
The CWDC and the CDE are hosting the 2021 Work-based Learning Incubator Convening on June 3-4 to support the development of high-quality work-based learning experiences in K-12 environments. The CWDC and CDE are searching for presenters, volunteers, and students for the event.
Through the Lives Empowered initiative, the CWDC is working to develop a scalable, industry-led model for upskilling the frontline workforce across Colorado. Diverse organizations and employers implement upskilling to improve employee retention, facilitate career advancement, attract new talent, and increase customer satisfaction.
The CWDC, Colorado Department of Education (CDE), and the Colorado Office of Career and Technical Education (CTE) worked with state and local partners to develop the “Preparing Students for Behavioral Health Careers” resource to support the development of behavioral health career pathway programs in secondary schools.
In an effort to accelerate progress in implementing the Talent Equity Agenda, the CWDC and partners are hosting Talent Equity Stakeholder Forums in February and March 2021.
We hope you can join us April 14-16 for Reenvisioning Retail 2021. Please save the date and stay tuned for more details.
