Advisory Committee

Workforce Matters formed an Advisory Committee to support the Fund for Workforce Equity. The Advisory Committee is comprised of funders that contribute at least $25,000/year to the Fund and stakeholders representing workers, learners, workforce organizations, and other field partners. Stakeholders will receive honoraria for participating. Roles of Advisory Committee include:

  • Assist with the development of the Request for Proposals (RFP).
  • Assist with the development of the overall strategy, priorities, learning goals, and direction of the fund.
  • Assist with fund outreach and recruitment (both of funders and potential applicants/grantees, as applicable).
  • Assist with the identification of technical assistance resources.
  • Optionally, participate on the Selection Committee, a subset of funders and stakeholders from the Advisory Committee that recommends a grant docket for approval by the Workforce Matters Steering Committee.
