Midwest Urban Strategies (MUS) is an industry association representing the workforce development boards (WDBs) of the major metro areas across the Midwest region. Member areas include Wichita (KS), Kansas City (MO), Minneapolis (MN), Milwaukee (WI), Chicago (IL), Gary (IN), Indianapolis (IN), Detroit (MI), Cleveland (OH), Columbus (OH), Canton (OH), Cincinnati (Oh), and Pittsburgh (PA). These WDBs organize through MUS to advocate for effective workforce policy and investment, learn together about the tenets of emerging promising practices and work to understand how they scale and network to improve the leadership capacity of WDBs across the region.
MUS hosts biannual convenings with its members to explore local innovations and to curate space for peer-to-peer networking. These convenings bring the membership together in one member area to do a deep dive into that local’s workforce system. This year is the first time we are back together post Covid. We are convening in Indianapolis June 6th – 9th, focusing on Employ Indy’s Talent Matching initiative: Work Wednesday as well as their opportunity youth program, YES Indy. On Thursday we will launch the partnership between MUS, Better Health Better Pay, and our MCO network.
