Practice Advisory 2.0
Practice Advisory 2.0 was born out of the success of the One Baltimore for Jobs (1B4J) initiative. As part of the 1B4J demonstration grant, recipients met regularly to troubleshoot the complex compliance of a government contract. Over the course of the two-year grant, these workforce professionals discussed other issues they faced and realized there was a great benefit to meeting across programs. After the 1B4J grant period ended, the Mayor’s Office of Employment Development hired outside consultants to engage workforce development professionals around the city to determine how to structure a Practice Advisory for the future. Fourteen workforce professionals met for six months to develop a framework for a citywide workforce practice advisory group. The new design for Practice Advisory 2.0 will be launched on January 30, 2019.
