EV Jobs Academy Defense & Outdoor Recreation Vehicles Meeting
The EV Jobs Academy grant was awarded to Southeast Michigan Community Alliance (SEMCA) Workforce Intelligence Network (WIN) to expand the state’s electric vehicle and mobility goals by proactively developing workforce initiatives with employers.
WIN is working with partners and affiliates to sustain and expand employer-led collaboratives designed to develop and initiate academies focused on closing industry-based skills gaps. This will be accomplished by attracting, upskilling and reskilling a mobility workforce across Michigan and serving historically underserved populations while creating a talent pipeline needed for the electrification of vehicles.
The Defense & Outdoor Recreation Vehicles Sub Collaborative meetings are held virtually every other month at 1 p.m. on the third Thursday, beginning in February.
Sub employer-led collaboratives support EV Jobs Academy functions including developing a sustainability plan, coordinating and performing outreach events, and supporting employer champions and industry experts in building, implementing, and managing academies.
Employers interested in EV Jobs Academy employer-led collaboratives or other components of future efforts to support Michigan’s vehicle and mobility industry growth can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Career seekers interested in pursuing opportunities in this industry should reach out to their local Michigan Works! Agency to explore occupations in mobility and electrification. To find their local Michigan Works! Agency, visit Michiganworks.org.
