Industry Partnerships

“Many hands make light work.” – Ancient Proverb

Businesses have more influence and access to resources when they work together. Industry partnerships give forward-thinking business leaders the opportunity to share best practices and innovative solutions to common challenges and to identify collective opportunities for industry growth. Central Pennsylvania’s industry partnerships are business led, meaning businesses set the priorities and actions that will help the industry and the community thrive; however, they don’t have to do it alone. Our partnerships are supported by a network of local partners representing workforce development, education, and economic development to help accomplish the industry partnership’s goals.

Advance Central PA and the Central PA CareerLink® currently support the MADE in Central PA manufacturing partnership and Central PA Healthcare Partnership. There are opportunities to start partnerships for additional sectors as well!

Joining a regional partnership puts you in a position to network with your peers in industry and tell community partners exactly what you need from them to make Central PA a strong competitor in the global market.
