Sector partnerships are widely recognized as a proven strategy for meeting the employment and skill needs of workers and employers.
Across Ohio, OMA-endorsed industry sector partnerships (ISPs) host meetings throughout the year for manufacturer members and prospective members to spotlight innovations in manufacturing training and regional workforce development.
One example: In Northeast Ohio, the Alliance for Working Together (AWT) will hold its annual meeting Feb. 16. in Mentor. Lydia Mihalik, director of the Ohio Department of Development, will be the keynote speaker. OMA members from Ashtabula, Geauga, or Lake counties are encouraged to attend this event to connect with peers and witness the impact of these strategic partnerships. 1/25/2024
