Accelerating Industry-Led Regional Partnerships for Talent Development Federal Funding Opportunity Webinar
Wed, Dec 3, 2014 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM EST
EDA Assistant Secretary Jay Williams will provide an introduction of the Accelerating Industry-Led Regional Partnerships for Talent Development Federal Funding Opportunity. He will be joined by Kate McAdams, Senior Advisor to Department of Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker and Bryan Borlik, Director of the EDA Performance and National Programs division.
EDA seeks to continue to build on its strong foundation of place-based regional economic development and partnerships within this funding opportunity. EDA seeks a non-profit “national partner” that will work with a Federal team led by the Department of Commerce, to launch a learning exchange to identify, promote, and expand upon successful best practices for industry-driven regional partnerships for talent development. The learning exchange is a mechanism to identify, understand, and elevate best practices, facilitate peer learning and deepen knowledge, spark replication and advancement across regions, and inform the long-term public investment in talent development.
