By investing in states and communities, Strada Education Network helps innovative policymakers align education and workforce development, increasing economic mobility for their residents.
Engaging with national, state-focused organizations
We work through national organizations, including the National Governors Association and the Education Commission of the States, to develop policies and strategies that connect education and employment, supporting the states’ economies.
Partnering directly with governors
We work with governors to align their states’ education and workforce efforts, creating affordable, flexible, and relevant education and training systems to support workers throughout their careers.
Thought leadership and sponsorships
To advance the national conversation about the importance of purpose-driven, career-focused education, our experts speak at national and regional conferences around the country and Strada supports our partners and collaborators through sponsorships and events.
