Career Readiness

In partnership with Capital Region Collaborative (CRC), the CRC Workforce Preparation Action Team has merged with the Bridging Richmond Career Readiness Collaborative Action Network (CAN) to take collective action. The Career Readiness CAN is convened by the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, and works closely with partnership Executive Director and chair of the CRC education action, Jason Smith. Cross-sector community leaders on the CAN and action teams will identify the areas for shared action, individual alignment, and advancement of policy improvement.

“VCU proudly serves as the anchor institution for the Bridging Richmond partnership. We support attainment of all types – certificates, apprenticeships, associate degrees, bachelor degrees, and more – because we all benefit from improving the regional economy and the lives of our neighbors.”
Dr. Gail Hackett, Virginia Commonwealth University Provost
