Connecting People to Work: Workforce Intermediaries and Sector Strategies

The past decade has seen substantial economic change and tremendous innovation within organizations seeking to help workers navigate these changes. Ten years after the release of Workforce Intermediaries for the 21st Century, the sector-based workforce development field has made a demonstrable difference for struggling workers seeking to connect to employment. Challenges still remain, but much has been learned.

In Connecting People to Work, Maureen Conway and Robert P. Giloth deliver a robust collection, bringing together perspectives from philanthropy, policy, research, and practice, and setting out how sector-based workforce development has evolved over thirty years, with a special focus on the past ten. The book brings together the thinking of some of these leaders in the field about how the sector strategy can evolve and inform public and private investments and policy decisions. This volume is sure to provoke timely reflection among practitioners, policy makers, investors, and researchers, as well as lay readers.
