The newest Community of Practice on Workforce3 One is the Innovation Forum. A joint venture by the U.S. Departments of Labor, Education, and Health and Human Service, the purpose is to get thought leaders, practitioners, researchers, partners, and stakeholders of the workforce system to share their experiences and discuss innovative approaches to transforming systems, changing service strategies and investing and leveraging funds in new ways that helps improve outcomes for our job seeker and employer customers. Be one of the first to write a blog post about an innovation that you are proud of or comment on a colleague's post. Join the discussion at: https://innovation.workforce3one.org.
