Keeping America in Business: Advancing Workers, Businesses, and Economic Growth


This 2003 Assembly explored challenges to workforce development in a changing, increasingly global economy.  Robert Giloth of the Annie E. Casey Foundation directed the project.

The Assembly led to the creation of the National Fund for Workforce Solutions (NFWS)--a collaborative funding initiative comprising over 100 foundations.  Workforce Intermediaries for the Twenty-first Century, the accompanying volume, remains an important work in the field.  A follow-on volume, Connecting People to Work: Workforce Intermediaries and Sector Strategies, was published in 2014.
