The Wisconsin Industry Partnership Academy is a joint effort between DWD and the Center on Wisconsin Strategy (COWS) to transform emerging partnerships into strong regional strategic alliances. Wisconsin’s leaders can learn about the Industry Partnership (IP) model and discuss strategies for implementing it effectively. The intent is to move industry partnership projects beyond early-phase convening toward implementation of training, particularly those focused on a designated career pathway or a career pathway bridge.
National experts and local practitioners share their knowledge on sector strategies and industry partnerships through keynote presentations and interactive discussions for the purpose of collaboration, peer-learning and strategy building. The 2010 workshops focused on strategy building for industry partnerships in challenging economic times and building industry partnerships and incorporating career pathways and bridges. See the list of 2010-2011 workshops below.
