MAX: Metro Atlanta Exchange for Workforce Solutions

MAX Talks

Launching HDCI Metro Atlanta

On behalf of WorkSource Metro Atlanta and MAX, please join us to celebrate and kick-off HDCI Metro Atlanta!  

HDCI Metro Atlanta is a regional, employer-led, workforce initiative in the sectors of healthcare, information technology and transportation, distribution and logistics (TDL). As part of the statewide High Demand Career Initiative Program, WorkSource Metro Atlanta, a coalition of area local workforce development agencies was recently awarded $400,000, by the Georgia Department of Economic Development, Workforce Division to establish sector partnerships in these high demand areas. The goal of HDCI Metro Atlanta is to ensure the availability of a competent workforce, in these sectors, now and in the future through innovative partnerships, training programs and services that give unemployed, underemployed and incumbent individuals opportunities to achieve economic gain and fulfilling careers through linked career pathways. 

All employers, academic institutions, chambers of commerce, community providers and government agencies with an interest in workforce development in these sectors are encouraged to participate. The event will feature a discussion on Georgia’s efforts to support and promote regional, sector partnerships in high demand careers, a panel discussion about each sector’s needs and challenges led by area WorkSource Boards and industry leaders, and an opportunity to network. 

Please join us on June 20th to hear more about HDCI Metro Atlanta and learn how you can be involved!
