About the Event

Research shows that 70 percent of Connecticut’s working-age adults should have some form of post-secondary work credential by 2025 if we are to meet the needs of our modernizing economy.

To fill the skills-gap, Connecticut must also address the barriers and dynamics of multi-generational poverty, including racial, age and gender discrimination and the lack of equitable access to educational opportunities and affordable child-care and transportation.

Since November 2019, a team of SVP Partners has been working with the Governor’s Workforce Council to identify gaps in the Connecticut labor market and obstacles faced by jobseekers and design a coordinated alignment of business needs, education, training programs, and other supportive services in pursuit of an effective, inclusive workforce system.

Together this coalition, which drew policy-makers, businesses, educators, social service agencies, and community groups, have designed a strategic plan that was presented to Governor Lamont in early October.

Join us for a presentation and discussion with SVP Partners who were directly involved in the development of the strategic recommendations to learn more about the plan the next steps for its implementation.
