The National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center), with funding from Walmart.org, is launching a State Community of Practice (CoP) focused on skills-based hiring in the public sector. This effort will bring together states, particularly those who have made significant steps to remove degree barriers for public sector roles, to learn about skills-based hiring strategies and emerging best practices for talent development. This CoP will include monthly virtual cohort engagements with experts and implementation partners between January 2024 and September 2024. The cohort will also have access to a large convening on skills-driven practices in Washington DC in April of 2024. Travel costs for attendance of cohort state representatives will be covered by NGA. The initial deadline to complete this interest form is Friday, January 19th. Additional states may be added after that date on a case-by-case basis.
