This companion website to the Supporting the Education Pipeline toolkit has been created to house background research, tools used by your peers in the field, protocols to help you implement your business engagement efforts, and case studies to illustrate the successes and lessons learned by others in the field. The website is organized according to the four business engagement strategies – identify, educate, persuade, activate. To help CBOs hone in on education initiatives along the education continuum, we have categorized resources under the five separate stages of education:
We have begun to populate the website based upon the collective research of Corporate Voices for Working Families, the Ready by 21 National Partnership, United Way Worldwide, and Workforce Strategy Center. Currently, the website includes:
- Case studies that highlight the success your peers have had in engaging employers in their efforts
- Reports that document effective strategies and the latest research on promising practices
- Examples and samples of tools such as meeting agendas, outreach letters, press releases, memoranda of understanding, etc.
- Protocols containing questions that will help guide you as you build your business outreach strategy.
