Workforce Agenda for New York City

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.
