  • The ideal state/local governmental structure to support Career Pathways models
  • Key partnerships needed to fully implement Career Pathways
  • Strategies for effectively engaging employers to inform training design & delivery
  • How Career Pathways can integrate with and positively impact local workforce development systems

The discussion will be facilitated by Danielle Waddell, Federal Project Officer for USDOL/ETA, Region 5 who will be joined by:
  • Annie Welch (Principal Planner, MN Department of Employment and Economic Development)
  • Amy Lord (Planning Coordinator, Anoka County Job Training Center)
  • Zoe Thompson, (Director, Workforce Training and Education, Kansas Dept. of Commerce)
  • Katie Baker (Director of One-Stop Operations, Workforce Centers of South Central Kansas)

This webinar will include an interactive question and answer period. Attendees who are new to Career Pathways or those seeking more in-depth information are encouraged to review the Career Pathways Toolkit prior to the webinar:
