Join an Industry Council to Help Build the State’s Future Workforce
Industry Councils are industry-specific groups of employers who work together to build a pipeline of people who are prepared to fill jobs in their industry. Each Industry Council is led by a group of employer executives. These executives are vital to the program because they understand the industry’s labor demand and supply. They work together with the OWBL to:
- Inform and shape education programs and credentials for students, so that graduates will have the unique skills and capabilities required to fill jobs in the sector.
- Help Council companies build and expand work-based learning experiences including internships, pre-apprenticeships, and apprenticeships.
- Help the industry meet diversity and inclusion goals and expand the talent pools that companies can tap into through work-based learning approaches.
- Engage and grow Council membership.
