  • Overview

    Since 2007, the Ohio Workforce Coalition has been bringing together leaders from education and training institutions, economic and workforce development organizations, business and industry, labor, and human service providers. The Coalition promotes public policies that build the skills of adult workers, meet employer skill needs, and strengthen the workforce system to ensure opportunity and prosperity for Ohio families.

Legislative Meeting

Today Bobbie Garber and I are going to meet with Ohio Representative Sandra Williams to talk about workforce development in Ohio.  Representative Williams (D-11) is chair of the Economic Development committee and is interested in working to shorten the time it takes for Ohioans to become reemployed.  I’ll write more this afternoon.

  1. We went to the meeting yesterday and we were invited back today to testify before the House Economic Development Committee on the importance of education and training to the future of Ohio’s companies, workers, and job-seekers. I am writing the testimony and will post it when I’m done.
