We are proud to announce the Buffalo & Niagara Falls, New York Workforce Leadership Academy, a program designed to support leaders in workforce development committed to the advancement of the local workforce ecosystem. The New York Association for Training and Employment Professionals (NYATEP) was one of only six organizations chosen from across the country to deliver an Academy in partnership with the Aspen Institute. The recorded informational webinar for interested applicants can be watched here: https://www.nyatep.org/Aspen-Institute-Workforce-Leaders-Academy . The Workforce Leadership Academy brings leaders – recognized as Fellows of the Academy – from across the local workforce ecosystem together for a yearlong series of retreats, workshops, and action learning projects. Fellows work with leading practitioners throughout the country as they deepen networks; strengthen systems leadership skills; apply race, equity, and systems change frameworks to their work; and increase understanding of effective strategies and programs. Alumni of the Academy become part of the Aspen Institute’s Economic Opportunity Fellows Network.

Fellows will be selected in a competitive application process. NYATEP and its partners encourage senior-level managers from across the workforce ecosystem of nonprofit organizations, business associations, union-based training efforts, public agencies, and community colleges who have the authority to implement changes to apply. Applications are available online here https://www.nyatep.org/Aspen-Institute-Workforce-Leaders-Academy. The deadline for submissions is February 10, 2023.
