Yesterday, we were joined live at HistoryMiami Museum by community leaders and LaborMiami.org partners — Maria Escorcia of JPMorgan Chase Foundation and 
Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava — to announce a groundbreaking regional partnership. Joining forces in the mission for an inclusive, thriving local economy, we are excited to announce a regional partnership between Miami-Dade County and the City of Miami, formally presenting LaborMiami.org as the preferred workforce and business resource for all of Miami. 
Through this newly forged partnership, LaborMiami.org will serve as the premier career development resource for Greater Miami, providing students, job seekers, entrepreneurs, and employers with free access to the tools, training, and information they need to build successful careers in industries that are powering Miami’s growing economy. The partnership will see regional presentation of the portal, increased visibility, and will ultimately lead more residents to leverage these available workforce resources.
LaborMiami.org brings together dozens of community resources into a single space, to help all Miamians find their pathway to economic success,” said The Miami Foundation CEO Rebecca Fishman Lipsey. “By providing both user-friendly labor market data, and access to critical wrap around services, we’re committed to building a Miami that works for everyone.”
We are incredibly excited for this collaborative effort to help our Greater Miami economy, labor market, and workforce prosper. Immense gratitude to all the LaborMiami.org partners who have poured their energy into this critical community resource, especially our longtime Building Prosperity partners: Catalyst MiamiCity of Miami, FIU Metro Center, and Health Foundation of South Florida.
