*Ohio Takes First Step Towards Sector Strategies with the Release of Toolkit *

In December, Ohio Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation (OWT) took a first step towards implementing a statewide industry sector partnership strategy with the release of its Sector Partnership Online Toolkit. The toolkit provides an overview of industry sector partnerships, a sample invitation to employers, a sample agenda, industry sector partnerships suggested qualifications, and data on jobs, supply and performance metrics.

This follows the announcement last summer by OWT that they would begin identifying and supporting priority sector partnerships in in-demand industries by engaging the Governor’s Executive Workforce Board (GWIB) members in industry outreach, providing convening support through partner state agencies, providing access to detailed labor market data and creating industry-specific Sector Partnership Toolkits as well as labor market data and a basic toolkit for sector partnerships in all other industries not deemed “priority”.

The Ohio Workforce Coalition (OWC), which NSC helped to initially convene, has long worked to elevate sector strategies in workforce policy and funding discussions. NSC will continue working with OWC as they partner with the Administration to implement industry sector partnerships strategies in the state.
