Sector strategies come to life through industry-led, public-private partnerships where collective business priorities are addressed. Colorado is home to many such partnerships and CWDC provides technical assistance to advance them, specifically:
We believe change happens locally and embrace a regional approach. We operate through a 14 region lens.
We believe industries have unique needs and convene Colorado’s 14 major industries, those that drive our state’s economy through innovation and growth.
Together, we can build on strengths, address new challenges and seize new opportunities that will advance Colorado.
TalentFOUND - Improving Colorado’s Talent Development System
Colorado’s economy is thriving and the demand for talent is strong. Colorado’s population is growing too and the demand for a rewarding career is strong. Additionally, the nature of work continues to evolve at an increasing rate due to innovation and technology.
For Colorado’s talent development system to reach higher levels of performance, we require layers of connected networks to enable collaboration and flow of vital information to ensure a person can move seamlessly within the ecosystem. Connected networks include:
Importance of Being Industry-Led
Industry-led means that businesses have come together to identify and work on initiatives that they collectively agree are vital to the health and growth of their sector. In Colorado, we take this very seriously as we have found that without business at the table, setting the agenda and owning building and implementing the solution, that Colorado’s talent development system becomes fragmented, misaligned to job opportunities, and inefficient.
