Mayor Kenney unveiled a new workforce development strategy that will help guide both the public and private sectors, a plan that will ensure every Philadelphia resident can build the skills needed to compete in the workforce.

The Mayor announced the plan as he delivered his third annual address to the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia. The new workforce development strategy was created by the City and a number of its partners, including the Chamber of Commerce, Philadelphia Works Inc., the School District of Philadelphia, Community College of Philadelphia, and Philadelphia Youth Network. Fueling Philadelphia’s Talent Engine is a citywide workforce development strategy aimed at addressing employers’ talent needs and preparing residents for careers in family-sustaining jobs.
