Courageous Progress is all about coming together as workforce leaders to discuss the coming challenges and facing them, head on. Whether you are an organization attempting to provide key services to a targeted population, a business looking to access and maintain a talented labor pool, a group of workforce partners looking to develop leveraged access points, a workforce region consisting of many stakeholders…a state…or even the Nation; we must work intentionally to connect our strategies to program design and delivery as we move into the “new economy”.
