VA Career Pathways System Highlighted in New Report and Webinar


In 2008, the Commonwealth of Virginia set in motion a process to build a statewide career pathways system. The purpose of that effort was to weave together and align education, workforce development, and economic development at all levels. You can read about Virginia's progress, outcomes to date, and lessons learned in Taking Root: The Virginia Career Pathways System, a new report from Workforce Strategy Center released by the Commonwealth today.


To learn more, join the Workforce Strategy Center for a webinar on Wednesday, October 24th, from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM EDT. Hear from key Virginia stakeholders who will discuss their career pathways work. The webinar will be moderated by WSC Senior Associate Melissa Goldberg, a co-author of the report. The webinar is designed to help state leaders interested in pursuing career pathways learn from Virginia's experiences. There will be plenty of time for questions and answers.


Speakers include:


Elizabeth Creamer, Director of Education and Workforce Development, Office of the Secretary of Education


Elizabeth Povar, Vice President, Business & Ally Services, Virginia Economic Development Partnership


Randall Stamper, Assistant Vice Chancellor, Career Pathways and Workforce Programs, Virginia Community College System and former Director, Adult Education and Literacy, Virginia Department of Education
