INVEST IN SKILLS NY
New York City Campaign
Funded in 2018, the Invest in Skills NY developed a statewide coalition to urge the Governor and NYS Legislature to invest in and move to a new strategy for workforce in New York State. This led to a $175 million investment; a new office of workforce development; a commitment to a statewide labor market data tool; and improved online presence.
In addition to continuing to be the champion for statewide workforce efforts, the next phase in launching Invest in Skills NYC to establish a diverse leadership team focused on New York City system transformation.
The overarching tenets of Invest in Skills NY will persist – however the strategies with be adjusted to adapt to the differences in local and state politics. Additionally, a central infrastructure will manage the administration, contractors, messaging, system-wide communication, and track legislative engagement.
