On July 19, 2018, CLASP partnered with the Workforce Collaborative of the Greater Washington Community Foundation to host Maximizing the Power of Pathways: Vital Career Pathway Conversations. The convening brought together state education and workforce development leaders, national organizations, advocates, funders, and federal agency staff to share perspectives on four current and critical areas of career pathway work:
- Career Pathways & Guided Pathways;
- Career Pathway Research
- Ability to Benefit; and
- Equity in Career Pathways.
In conversation on these four topics, state leaders shared progress and pain points as well as passion and expertise. CLASP has compiled highlights from these discussions in hopes that they will spur further conversation and action in communities across the country.
