We are bringing together business, education & community, to equip New Yorkers for the jobs of tomorrow.
We are fostering collaboration among business, education, and community leaders to prepare New Yorkers in diverse, low-income communities for the future of work and meet employer needs. Member CEOs are committed to working with our partners to create economic opportunity for New Yorkers by:
Connecting students & workers with in-demand skills
Removing barriers to training & jobs
Developing long-term, stable career pathways
Why?—Our economy and the nature of work are fundamentally evolving. Many New Yorkers—especially in low-income and diverse communities—have either been left behind or did not have the opportunity to keep up in the first place.
The future of New York City’s economy and workforce requires breaking down industry and educational silos and opening the door to local talent.
