Purpose: Build engaged and enduring partnerships across and among training & education providers, and health & human services providers to ensure a sufficient supply of health and human services workers by providing students, job seekers, and incumbent workers with the knowledge, skills, and resources needed to obtain employment and advance in their careers.

June-December 2022 Workgroups

Purpose: To identify, align, and develop resources needed for Rhode Island to collect and analyze current workforce supply, projected workforce demand, and effective workforce support programming across all occupations, specializations, education levels (including lived experience), sectors, geography, etc. – with a particular focus on racial, ethnic, linguistic, and cultural diversity. This work will ensure that providers and patients/clients have the supported and well-compensated health and human service workforce needed to provide accessible, high-quality health and human services.
