Targeted Industries

Targeting the High Growth, High Demand Industries of Future.

The Capital Region Workforce Partnership has identified four industries that have great potential for growth, and at the same time have great workforce needs. We believe that the Resource Workforce Partnership, along with the rest of the workforce development system in the Richmond Region, can help accelerate growth in these industries by addressing workforce needs. Not only will this mean greater success for businesses in these industries, but it will also mean greater economic opportunity for all who are employed by those businesses, not the least of which would be those individuals Resource has directly assisted in finding a rewarding career path in on of our four targeted industries.
