The California Innovation Corridor
The WIB Toolkit was produced as a component of the "California Innovation Corridor" (CIC)
project. The CIC was initiated by a $15M/3-Year U.S. Department of Labor grant to
the State of California and the California Space Authority titled, "Workforce Innovation in Regional Economic Development"
(WIRED). The CIC includes the California Space Authority; the State of California's Labor
and Workforce Development Agency and Employment Development Department;
and over 60 industry, academic, workforce, and economic development participants extending
across 13 counties. This CIC team is conducting a joint effort throughout the Corridor to drive entrepreneurship, global manufacturing competitiveness,
and 21st century workforce development.
The WIB Toolkit was developed through collaboration among three organizations: The California Council on Science
and Technology (the project lead); the California Space Education and Workforce Institute; and the
California Workforce Association. Additional research was conducted under contract to CCST by Time Structures, an independent
consulting firm. For more information on these organizations, please select from the menu on the left.
