Welcome to sectorstrategies.org!

This website is part of an on-going multi-state project focused on accelerating the adoption of sector strategies. Sector strategies are being adopted by dozens of states to connect workers to relevant training and education, and to connect employers to skilled workers.

What are sector strategies? They are state policies that promote regional partnerships of employers, educators, workforce developers and other stakeholders that address the skills needs of critical industries in a region. They are focused on one critical industry; are led by a strategic partner who coordinates dialogue and action; and result in customized solutions to the workforce needs of employers in the industry. They are a proven mechanism for meeting the needs of workers for good jobs and the needs of employers for skilled workers.
