The California Economic Summit (Summit) released its 2016 Roadmap to Shared Prosperity today, highlighting a set of ambitious goals—the One Million Challenges—that will be vital to expanding sustainable economic growth in every part of California. The updated 2016 report identified workforce development as one of the three essential areas where progress must be accelerated for California to thrive in the next decade.
1. Align public and private partners on goals, strategies, and metrics to help young Californians be prepared for meaningful careers.
2. Encourage coordination and effectiveness – and create accountability for results – to meet the needs of students and employers.
3. Develop and advocate for incentives that drive improvements in programs and improve job placements
