Public Policy Advocacy › Workforce Solutions Group

The Workforce Solutions Group (WSG) is SkillWorks' public policy advocacy grantee. As such, WSG advocates for an effective workforce development system that increases workers’ skills, advances families to self-sufficiency and promotes job creation and economic growth.

The Workforce Solutions Group is a coalition led by the following organizations, representatives of which comprise WSG's E-Team:

This broad coalition of workforce development organizations is dedicated to improving and reforming the Massachusetts workforce development system. Their unique strength is that they bring together a diverse range of employers, unions, education and training providers, community colleges, immigrant advocates, workforce investment boards, and interfaith organizations united by their common interest in having a strong and effective workforce development system.

WSG's goal is to develop visible and accessible pathways to education and quality employment for all Massachusetts residents. WSG advocates for post-secondary training and education in high demand industries, early employment options for young people, and better alignment between training and education systems. WSG also convenes the annual MA Jobs and Workforce Summit and works with employer associations to ensure the commonwealth remains competitive with a highly skilled workforce.
