Session: Building Strategic Alliances with Business/Industry, Workforce Development and Economic Development
Bringing together key partners to achieve buy-in, support and advocacy for important Career Technical Education initiatives and projects has never been more crucial.Â But, there must be a win-win dynamic in place and their investment of time, energy and resources must be respected at every stage.Â This session will share best practices for building strategic alliances with diverse groups.Â Participants will review examples and outcomes of collaborative work that has taken place in Nebraska including the Nebraska Standards for Career Ready Practice, Career Readiness Modules, Professional Development Modules, H3 Website, Preparation for Tomorrow Food and Nutritional Sciences project and others.
