Call for Applications: Workforce Leadership Academies Partners

The Aspen Institute’s Economic Opportunities Program seeks local partners to implement Workforce Leadership Academies (WLAs) in up to six cities or regions. WLAs bring together leaders from across local workforce ecosystems into a 10-month fellowship to deepen networks, strengthen systems leadership skills, apply race equity and systems change frameworks to leaders’ work, and deepen understanding of effective strategies and programs. Local partners will position the academy within the local workforce ecosystem, develop an advisory council, facilitate all in-person and virtual academy sessions and activities, and position fellows’ proposed systems recommendations. A letter of intent to apply must be submitted by June 24, 2022.
