Welcome to Cities Connect, where we discuss issues that matter. In this episode, Clarence Anthony, Jr., PhD, with the Partnership for Inclusive Innovation (PIN) discusses workforce development trends in Georgia. Workforce development is a key driver to economic growth at the city, regional, and state level, yet many early career professionals struggle with finding their first meaningful job. He also discusses how PIN is working to address pressing issues in the state's workforce. 

Following Clarence's presentation, PIN's Katie O'Connor provides an introduction to the PIN Community Research Grants program, including success stories from past projects, information about how to form a project team and decide on a proposal, how to apply, and other resources to help your community create shared economic prosperity and provide public innovations for all.
