Workforce Fellows

Meet our Results for America State and Local Workforce Fellows

In September 2019, Results for America’s State and Local Workforce Fellowship was founded to help 23 data-driven state and local government leaders from 7 leading states make tangible progress in improving employment outcomes for their citizens. The fellowship is a project of RFA’s Evidence in Workforce Lab (Work Lab).

The fellowship is the first to bring together senior workforce leaders from state and local workforce agencies into a single network focused on accelerating the generation and use of evidence. By supporting these innovative leaders, Results for America is creating new champions in investing in what works and helping make evidence-based policymaking the new normal in workforce development.
