Strategy BE5.4: Create more short-term workforce development classes (less than six months) that meet immediate workforce demand, such as Certified Logistics Associate, Certified Logistics Technician, CNC Machinist, and Fundamentals of Automated Machining.

Strategy Description

Minorities and women often face significant barriers to successful employment. Workforce development providers should identify programs and systems with proven results that could be replicated or expanded in the region and seek opportunities to overcome these barriers through innovative solutions, such as online training and prior learning assessment strategies. For example, organizations should provide more outreach to women and minorities to increase enrollment in traditionally male-dominated training courses, such as those in supply chain operations.
