Sector partnerships are comprised of industries with shared needs, as well as various education, workforce, economic, and community organizations in supportive roles. Visit this page to learn more about current programs and initiatives aimed at keeping Iowa growing and strong through collaborative sector strategies.
SECTOR PARTNERSHIP TOOLKITS
A collaborative effort by the state to provide guidance and training on sector partnerships has resulted in the development of a series of downloadable toolkit publications. These toolkits are not exhaustive, but rather aimed at preparing the state and regions to make data-informed critical decisions throughout the three developmental stages of planning, emerging, and sustaining sector partnerships. Each toolkit covers a wide range of topics, advice, real world examples, and supplemental materials that will be helpful at each of these three stages.
Learn about the project and methodology of developing an inventory of sector partnerships across the State of Iowa, see what these partnerships are, and where they exist.
