The New York City Workforce Funders commissioned the Field Building Hub to conduct a strategic review of New York City workforce initiatives since 2014, both public and philanthropic. Using recent frameworks as a reference point—including the 2013 Re-envisioning the New York City Workforce System and the 2014 Career Pathways: One City Working Together reports - the resulting Workforce Agenda for New York City report provides the workforce field and its funders a set of pragmatic recommendations for effecting measurable system-level improvements over the next four to five years.
The Field Building Hub initiatives and expertise have been featured in multiple forums this fall: NYATEP Fall Conference in Syracuse, NY, Sector Convening on the Supply of and Demand for Middle Skill Jobs in Healthcare presented at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, and ….
We are very excited to see our Hub Director, Stacy Woodruff, prominently featured alongside many of our peers and partners, including Advisory Committee Member and JPMC Global Philanthropy VP Jennie Sparandara, in the NY Daily News Workforce Development feature on November 9th.
