National Skills Coalition works with its members in the states and in Washington, DC, to ensure the media is getting the full story about America's workers and industries and the need for a 21st-century national skills agenda.
National Skills Coalition's experts can provide background and comment on a range of issues that impact the development of a skilled workforce, including higher education, workforce, trade, tax, and budget policy. We can also connect you with employers, unions, advocates, and education and training providers in the states who can speak to the impact of these policies.
