Advocacy & Outreach

Philadelphia Works keeps the public, policymakers and local elected officials informed of the importance of workforce issues. 

By regularly convening cross-sector teams of employers, jobseekers, the workforce system, education and training providers, and other community organizations, we are constantly accessing the knowledge and lived experiences of our stakeholders.  

These important activities allow us to design and promotes policies to help Philadelphia enact and sustain the workforce training programs that demonstrate the most promise while promoting collaboration and innovation across sectors.

Philadelphia Works synthesizes research, evidence, and input from stakeholders to inform local planning around issues vital to the economic health of our region.
