About Us
Partners for a Competitive Workforce is a partnership in the Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana tri-state region focused on meeting employer demand by growing the skills of our current and future workforce.  The partnership developed out of a long history of collaboration in the tri-state region to address our workforce challenges.  

Our partners include businesses, workforce investment boards, chambers of commerce, secondary and post-secondary educational institutions, service providers and philanthropic funders. The partnership is managed by United Way of Greater Cincinnati, with major support provided by the National Fund for Workforce Solutions and local funders

We have come together to coordinate all of the region’s workforce efforts under a common umbrella, set joint priorities, and track our progress. By joining efforts, we aim to accelerate the pace of collaboration so that our region goes farther, faster in preparing our workforce to compete. 

Employers have the talent they need to compete, and people have the skills they need to get good jobs and advance in their careers.

Meet employer demand by growing the skills of our current and future workforce.

>Bold Goal
By 2020, 90 percent of the labor force will be gainfully employed.
