“The past two years have been transformative for workforce staff. Designing and implementing sector strategies have re-designed how we work with industry and business partners and how we focus and leverage our resources. We have become the conveners for sector groups, and as such are able to facilitate meaningful workforce and economic development initiatives.” – Jennee Miles, Director Mohave/La Paz LWIA “In the past, we felt that employers came to us for solutions that we didn't necessarily have formed yet. Sector partnerships are different. The private sector sees this as a way to get involved. In fact, they are now coming to us, they want to help, they want to get involved, they are so excited. It’s almost overwhelming. In reality there’s no need to push or sell this concept. All we did was explain what we’re doing – it’s not about asking for something from them, but about a discussion of needs and opportunities. And they have lots of ideas, which is the whole point. The private sector knows what they need.” – Al Carlow, City Councilman, City of Prescott, and Vicki Mastriani, NACOG
