New Report: Sharing The Future: A Vision for Workforce Intermediaries in Los Angeles County

Supported by The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation (TBF), this report offers a detailed survey of workforce intermediaries (WIs) in Los Angeles County. Essential for linking employers with educators, training programs, and labor pools – particularly those marginalized from the job market – WIs are diverse in their function and impact. Despite the significant presence of WIs in the Los Angeles area, there’s an absence of a unified WI model for funders from the philanthropic, public, or private sectors to support comprehensively.

The diverse needs of LA County may challenge the feasibility of a singular, all-encompassing WI. Nonetheless, it is imperative to strive for a more uniform definition and purpose among WIs, alongside clear indicators of success, to streamline and enhance workforce development efforts in the region.
