In response to the growing concern about the fast transitioning economy and job markets, which are becoming increasingly more technical and specialized, LA County’s 19 Community Colleges have agreed to launch and co-invest in the region’s first Center for a Competitive Workforce, which will be housed at the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC). The Center will deliver on the vision of the statewide Strong Workforce Program with new and better coordination by combining research on the supply of and demand for talent, which may incite changes across the state in how Strong Workforce is implemented.
