    Governor Eric Holcomb is one of 20 founding governors in a national effort to boost workforce skills. The Skillful State Network focuses on creating a labor market in the U.S. where employers can tap into desired talent and workers can continuously acquire new skills. The network says it will leverage data and technology and allow participating states to share "what works."

    In addition to Indiana, founding states include Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Illinois, Massachusetts, Montana, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.

    Holcomb says "our focus in Indiana is preparing our workforce for jobs available now and in the years to come. Sharing workforce practices among Skillful State Network members and encouraging multiple pathways to success in a changing economy will strengthen our talent pool, meet employer demand and put hardworking Hoosiers in high-need, high-wage careers of the future."
