We are thrilled to announce that the EDGE Coalition will be California’s lead partner for the just-launched national SkillSPAN program supported by the National Skills Coalition.  SkillSPAN is a first-ever nationwide network of non-partisan coalitions focused on advancing state policies that expand economic opportunities for workers and their families while boosting local business’ capacity.  SkillSPAN coalitions develop and promote policies that help workers find good family-supporting jobs, help businesses find skilled workers, and help states build strong inclusive economies.  SkillSPAN coalitions include policy and research organizations, community-based organizations, businesses, unions, community colleges, workforce boards, state and local agencies and others advocating for a shared agenda.  As a national network, SkillSPAN leverages the combined expertise of state coalition members and amplifies their collective voices in state capitols across the nation.  Ten state coalitions in CA, GA, IA, IN, IL, MA, MI, NC, TN, and WA joined SkillSPAN in 2019.  An additional ten are slated to join in 2020, with further growth planned in 2021.
