Who We Are

Georgia BLU

Georgia BLU brings together employers from a range of industries throughout the state of Georgia who are concerned about the skills gap, are working with local partners to train and hire community residents for skilled jobs, and want to engage policymakers as collaborators in order to ensure effective investment in the skills of Georgia's workers. BLU provides a common platform from which our state's business leaders can jointly communicate to state and national policymakers, the press, and the public about effective industry-based workforce strategies and policies. And, Georgia BLU facilitates peer-to-peer learning to elevate innovative and leading workforce development practices from throughout the state. Georgia BLU is a state partner of the national network.

Georgia BLU launched in September 2016.
