EVJA Full Employer-Led Collaborative
Gov. Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity (LEO) awarded a $5 million Michigan Revolution for Electrification of Vehicles Academy (MiREV) grant to Southeast Michigan Community Alliance (SEMCA) to expand the states goals in electric vehicle and mobility by proactively developing workforce initiatives with employers.
SEMCA’s Workforce Intelligence Network (WIN) will use MiREV funds to sustain and expand employer-led collaboratives designed to develop and initiate academies focused on closing industry-based skills gaps. This will be accomplished through attracting, upskilling and reskilling a mobility workforce across Michigan and through serving historically underserved populations while creating a talent pipeline needed for the electrification of vehicles.
The employer-led collaboratives will support MiREV 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 MiREV employer-led collaboratives or other components of future efforts to support Michigan’s vehicle and mobility industry growth, can email email@example.com.
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.
