Sector Initiatives or Sector Strategies are regional, employer-driven partnerships of industry, education and training, and other stakeholders focusing on the workforce needs of key industries in a regional labor market. The funding for this initiative is through CareerSource Florida, from the U.S. Department of Labor, and is aimed at improving planning and coordination between relevant stakeholders, initiating or facilitating the training needed, and providing on the job training funds, paid to employers, to assist displaced workers embarking on or resuming meaningful careers within these sectors.

The effort requires insights from industry insiders, educational and training partners, economic developers at county and municipality levels, community leaders, elected officials, workforce development experts — and YOU.
