Labor Market Information Shops: Delivering Critical Reinforcements to State Workforce Agencies

Ballroom B (Mez.)

Description

In many states, Labor Market Information (LMI) shops are evolving into broader data shops that provide several tiers of service to multiple workforce units and state agencies. At this workshop a prominent state administrator and three LMI directors who are leaders in national LMI initiatives will share how LMI shops can be leveraged to raise the profile of the agency and the impact of its mission. They'll discuss descriptive, evaluative and predictive work they perform for their governors, workforce leaders, UI agencies, and more!
