COWS. Employers Take the Lead: A Report on Wisconsin’s Industry Partnership Project. COWS, 2013.
This report summarizes the accomplishments of and lessons learned from the Wisconsin Industry Partnerships (IP) initiative (2008–2012), a project directing state investment of more than six million dollars in concert with dozens of participating employers in order to increase the skills of over 6000 workers in the state. Wisconsin’s IP experience is especially relevant today as leaders turn their attention to building the skills of the state’s workforce.
