Education, Diversity, and Growth in the Economy
Who We Are
The California EDGE Coalition unites business, labor, social justice, education and workforce organizations to build a broadly shared prosperity.
What We Do
The California EDGE Coalition advances state workforce policy and investments to create economic mobility for all Californians.
Post-secondary education and training is the gateway to economic mobility for both individuals and their communities. But too many Californians run into closed doors when they try to access opportunities. California thrives and prospers based upon the diversity, skills, and strength of its people. We are working across sectors to unlock doors so that more people have the opportunity to develop the skills and abilities needed in today’s labor market.
Our Policy Agenda
We believe our state’s education and training institutions can work together effectively to provide skills development for all Californians. And we need to pay special attention to individuals who have been barred from opportunity in the past, are now the majority of our workforce, and will drive California’s future.
The California EDGE Coalition Policy Agenda highlights common-sense strategies that state policy makers can enact to invest in workforce education and training to promote our vision – a broadly shared prosperity.
A Policy Agenda for Shared Prosperity
The California EDGE Coalition’s new policy agenda proposes a series of recommendations that we believe will help California achieve the twin goals of economic dynamism and widespread economic opportunity.
