New Orleans Works (NOW)

The New Orleans Works collaborative (NOW) was established over 9 years ago with the purpose of building the capacity of the local workforce system while fostering public policy and coordinating opportunities for robust and long-lived relationships among employers, workers, education, and training/service providers to enhance a cohesive pipeline to front-line jobs and career ladders. To achieve its goal of creating an environment with opportunities for higher wages, better benefits, and career advancement for the region’s workforce, NOW used the vehicle of the healthcare sector. In an effort to continually innovate, NOW has expanded its focus to include the emerging field of green infrastructure and is committed to identifying new training opportunities that will position New Orleanians to take advantage of new careers that are introduced in the region.
