Governor Steve Bullock this week is hosting a Solutions Summit in Whitefish on his National Governors Association chair’s initiative, Good Jobs for All Americans, to review state strategies and provide the nation’s governors with a roadmap to creating good jobs and pathways to prosperity.
“No one should have to leave their community, school, or place of worship to find a good job. As the nation’s governors, we see first-hand the challenges of our future workforce, and we also see opportunity and put partisanship aside to recognize those economic opportunities for all Americans,” said Governor Bullock. “I look forward to talking about what we have learned over the past year and sharing with other states a new set of tools to set the course for good jobs for our citizens – now and in decades to come.”
The Whitefish Solutions Summit on May 21-22 will feature Governor Bullock, Lt. Governor Cooney, teams representing 32 states, industry representatives, and partners. An address will feature internet pioneer and author Steve Case, the AOL co-founder who now is chairman and CEO of Revolution. States will share specific actions governors can take to forge pathways for current, future, and underemployed workers.
Key findings from the initiative will be presented during the NGA Summer Meeting in July in a Governor’s Guide to equip state leaders with real-world solutions that will live on past the initiative.
The Summit comes after regional workshops on the initiative held in Pittsburgh, Las Vegas and Des Moines over the last year, and as Governor Bullock winds down his tenure as NGA chair.
Good Jobs for All Americans has explored strategies to empower rural communities, reskill mid-career workers and create a future-ready workforce. To learn more about the initiative, visit www.nga.org/goodjobs/.
