Partnering With Purpose: Building Partnerships to Drive Equitable Registered Apprenticeships

Jobs for the Future


It takes a village to create a diverse, equitable, inclusive, and accessible Registered Apprenticeship program.

Partnerships are the key to building well-run apprenticeships that prepare workers of all ages for rewarding careers. For a program to succeed, many stakeholders must work together—from the employers who hire apprentices to the training programs that provide instruction, from community-based organizations and workforce boards to K-12 school districts and community colleges, from industry associations and workforce intermediaries to state apprenticeship systems.

But forging strong partnerships can be tricky, and you may be thinking: Who do I connect with? How do I convince another organization to partner with me? Who does what? How do I know if this is working?

For answers to those questions and more, be sure to join us May 4 for the virtual spring summit of Jobs for the Future’s National Innovation Hub for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility in Registered Apprenticeship.

You’ll hear leaders of thriving apprenticeship partnerships discuss the steps they took to build strong relationships with fellow stakeholders and the factors that make their partnerships succeed. You’ll leave with promising practices for building partnerships that will take your new or existing Registered Apprenticeship to the next level in supporting equitable program design, recruitment, and retention.
