Coordinating Council

Employ Milwaukee’s core “supply side” delivery mechanism is our Coordinating Council, a 40 plus member association of local workforce system service providers. The Council is designed as an advisory body comprised primarily of major organizations that provide workforce development and related services and funding. Its mission is to collaborate to improve employer access to skilled workers by communicating employer needs identified by our Industry Advisory Boards, remediating system wide barriers, exchanging best practices, and collaborating on funding opportunities. Working Groups include such cooperative efforts as the Milwaukee Re-Entry Network, the Milwaukee Job Ride Collaborative, and the Driver’s License Recovery Initiative. Its primary focus is to address the needs of the worker in their efforts to insure alignment with the employers needs for a skilled workforce.
