Pensacola was one of five communities in the United States selected for a new initiative designed to advance inclusive workforce development within their regions through a focus on reaching under-served populations.
The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning announced the launch of the Inclusive Development Network. The Inclusive Development Network will work to identify and implement strategies that reduce equity gaps in local workforce development in the Pensacola area. Factors that lead to Pensacola being selected for this initiative include geography and size, as well as their existing and proposed reach with under-served populations.
FloridaWest will serve as the local agency for the Inclusive Development Network in Pensacola. The other communities selected for this initiative are Cleveland, Ohio; Corpus Christi, Texas; Coweta, Oklahoma and Spokane, Washington.
