We'd like to invite you to an engaging discussion about a first of its kind investment in using technology to help bridge the middle skills gaps. Colorado will be the firststate in the country to help launch a 21stcentury digital labor market that connects jobseekers, employers, and educational providers. Colorado was chosen because of the enormous collaboration and innovation already taking place here. This effort builds on past work, creating additional partnerships.

Led by the Markle Foundation, with partners including LinkedIn, edX, the State of Colorado, and the Colorado Advanced Manufacturing Alliance, this cutting edge public-private partnership will help middle-skill job seekers in Colorado gain access to innovative learning opportunities leading to meaningful career opportunities, while giving local employers a more qualified workforce.
