Submit An Industry Partnership

Maryland Workforce Investment Boards utilize labor market data and industry expertise to identify industry sectors within their respective local economies to ascertain workforce trends and needs. A Strategic Industry Partnership is a successful collaboration of business and industry, with workforce development, economic development, and education to ensure that workers are prepared to meet the growing demands in specific sectors. Maryland is working to identify all existing industry partnerships in order to utilize their expertise and experience to expand Maryland’s network of regional sectors initiatives and connect them with the overarching state-level Key Industry Networks.

Please submit your Industry Partnership today, or if your program is not specific to an industry sector, then Submit a Workforce Innovation rather than an Industry Partnership.

All fields are required unless otherwise noted.
