We know that the future of work is upon us. But as the innovation economy drives new levels of wealth for some, it is not reaching all San Diegans. How do we ensure that everyone has access to opportunity through work? The Workforce Partnership is committed to advancing new ideas, and ensuring these critical shifts have equitable outcomes that improve the lives of all.

Auditorium full of people


Join us to explore the boundary-busting, outer reaches of workforce development where job quality, equity, outcomes and opportunity drive our supports for San Diego County’s job seekers, families, businesses and economy.
