Prioritizing Career Development with Six Essential Strategies 

Kingston, Tennessee (September 25, 2018) — To meet the challenge of creating effective state career pathway systems, the Global Pathways Institute and Education Commission of the States partnered to convene a Thinkers Meeting comprised of leading national experts. Participants included a diverse set of career pathway perspectives from institutional, state, and national levels.


This collaborative effort from leading organizations in partnership and financial support from WIN Learning has led to an initial brief that will contribute to the growing efforts in many states to build more effective career pathway systems. The outcome of the initial dialogue has framed the discussion around six essential strategies:


  1. Prioritizing career development.

  2. Strengthening career pathway programs.

  3. Scaling up work-based learning and business engagement.

  4. Creating more equitable programs and policies.

  5. Building an effective state career pathway system.

  6. Creating a more effective paradigm.


Members of the organizations encourage states to reimagine their career development infrastructure to meet present and future demands for education and workforce systems.
