American Workforce Coalition
Systemic change requires cooperation and collaboration across multiple sectors. In response, CWI Labs launched the American Workforce Coalition (AWC) in January 2022 to build a national movement supporting America’s older workers.
The AWC educates employers, workforce practitioners, philanthropic leaders, economic development teams, and the American public on the critical role that older workers play in the success of employers and local communities. It identifies the approaches that empower older workers with the skills they need to be successful. And it convenes leaders and innovators to build scalable solutions to the challenges facing older job seekers.
The members of the AWC represent the most influential organizations at the intersection of workforce and aging. Together, the AWC members bring more than 560 years of experience to the shared mission, including decades of workforce development programs empowering Black, Hispanic, Native American, and Asian Pacific & Pacific Islander job seekers.
From job reports and legislative updates to peer-to-peer collaboration and knowledge sharing, the AWC helps leaders in the workforce space amplify their voices and increase their impact on advancing the workforce aspirations of older adults.
