SlingShot

 

 

SlingShot seeks to seed collaborative efforts by employers and industry, government, workforce and economic development, and education stakeholders within a region to identify and then work to solve employment challenges that slow California’s economic engine — with regionally-selected solutions to regionally-defined problems.Click here for a broader overview.

The 5 Dimensions of Slingshot:

• We can make the greatest impact on major jobs and employment issues at the regional level.
• We must turn the tide on income mobility in California.
• We need to tackle big issues.
• We need to measure what we undertake.
• We must create the space to take risks
