Workforce Solutions Alamo to Launch Workforce Leadership Academy in Collaboration with the Aspen Institute

Local workforce board selected as one of eight organizations across the country to deliver workforce development academy

December 13, 2022, SAN ANTONIO, TX – Workforce Solutions Alamo announced it will be sponsoring a Workforce Leadership Academy, a program designed to support leaders in workforce development committed to the advancement of the local workforce ecosystem. Workforce Solutions Alamo was one of only eight organizations chosen from across the country to deliver an Academy in partnership with the Aspen Institute.

The Workforce Leadership Academy brings leaders – recognized as Fellows of the Academy – from across the local workforce ecosystem together for a year-long series of retreats, workshops, and action learning projects. Fellows work with leading practitioners throughout the country as they deepen networks; strengthen systems leadership skills; apply race, equity, and systems change frameworks to their work; and increase understanding of effective strategies and programs. Alumni of the Academy become part of the Aspen Institute’s Economic Opportunity Fellows Network, joining Fellows from fourteen previous Academies in eleven cities in the US and Canada.

“A high-capacity, responsive, and agile local workforce ecosystem is critical to increasing the chances of sustainable and equitable economic recovery,” said Sheila Maguire, Senior Fellow with the Aspen Institute Economic Opportunities Program. “The Academy provides leaders with the rare opportunity to think and act strategically across siloes to advance outcomes for workers and businesses.”

Fellows will be selected in a competitive application process. Workforce Solutions Alamo and its partners encourage senior-level managers from across the workforce ecosystem of nonprofit organizations, business associations, union-based training efforts, public agencies, and community colleges who have the authority to implement changes to apply. Applications will open on January 17, 2023. Information on how to apply will be announced and made available in early January.

“Workforce Solutions Alamo is both honored and proud to partner with the prestigious Aspen Institute through the Workforce Leadership Academy,” said Adrian Lopez, CEO for Workforce Solutions Alamo. “The Academy aligns with our vision to lead the most integrated community workforce ecosystem dedicated to developing innovative and impactful solutions that bridge local employers with qualified, skilled job seekers.”
