High Road Training Partnerships: Resilient Workforce Fund Program
The CWDB understands long-term, low-wage work is a significant problem for the future of California and seeks to build systems to promote access and advancement to better-paying jobs. This initiative will continue to tackle this issue by focusing on industry as an organizing principle, and building partnerships that develop skills employers need in ways that secure stronger economic opportunities for low-income workers.
Furthermore, mitigating or adapting to climate disruption and environmental threat requires skill shifts not only through transportation, construction, and energy, but also in sectors such as healthcare, hospitality, information technology, and emergency services.
Investments in a skilled workforce promote energy, water, and fuel efficiency, build and capture the value of low-carbon technology, and support healthy, economically resilient communities. This requires intentional, strategic, workforce development driven by collaborative regional training partnerships serving multiple employers in key industries.
