How New Partnerships Are Advancing Economic Mobility
As we begin to recover from one of our nation’s greatest crises, it’s time to rethink the way we finance worker upskilling to meet the future of work. Achieving the twin objectives of advancing economic opportunities for workers and meeting the talent needs of the economy requires us to rewire the workforce system—rebalancing risk and realigning financial incentives.
That’s what this book is about. It highlights a new breed of partnerships emerging among government officials, education and training providers, corporate leaders, and investors—partnerships that are built to achieve outcomes. These models link funding to results, helping actors to think and invest longer term, apportion risks and align incentives more thoughtfully, and unleash the power of adaptation and entrepreneurship to build a more inclusive, more equitable, and stronger workforce system.
