We pursue our mission through three programs:
KnowledgeWayVOICE - a regional awareness program to increase the public's understanding of the New Economy in the Greater Washington region and the critical success factors to sustain the region's leadership in these industries. Projects include: a baseline study of the New Economy in the region; studies on industry sectors; an econometric impact report on the importance of the information and communications industry on the region's economy now and in the future; and a "Regional Report Card" that measures the region's progress on human, financial, entrepreneurial, education and research infrastructure issues.
KnowledgeWayWORKS a program to facilitate communication and collaboration among regional stakeholders to meet the education and workforce needs of the New Economy. Projects include a web-based clearinghouse for the latest information on regional workforce programs, issues and events; an online resource center featuring relevant research, models of success, and best practices; a Skills for Success program that identifies skills required by industry, today and in the future, and articulates them to the education community; and regular events that promote networking and communication among stakeholders in business and education.
