  • Lead efforts to engage a diverse range of employers and other entities in the region;
  • Lead efforts to develop and implement career pathways;
  • Lead efforts in the local area to identify and promote proven and promising strategies and initiatives for meeting the needs of employers, workers, and job seekers;
