Creating An Equitable, Resilient Workforce System: New Ideas for the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act

Developed by the National Skills Coalition, this brief lists the ways states can transform WIOA from an underfunded system to one that is adequately resourced to deliver high-quality skills training their stakeholders may benefit from. National Skills Coalition recommends the following reforms: 

  • Invest in programs that provide equitable high-quality skills training, economic supports and pathways to quality jobs;
  • Provide accountability for our workforce system to contribute to an inclusive economy; and
  • Strengthen the delivery of equity-advancing WIOA career services.
