OUR MISSION IS TO HELP SOLVE
GREATER MEMPHIS’ SKILLS GAP.
Led by employers, built for workers.
The Greater Memphis Alliance for a Competitive Workforce (GMACW) was created to build a pipeline of high-skilled workers to address the needs of businesses in the Mid-South area. Its two-prong strategy focuses on providing employers access to the quality workforce they need to compete and citizens access to the skills they need to get great jobs. Through the collaboration of its partner organizations, the alliance works every day to build career pathways between the unemployed and the area’s open high-skill positions.
GMACW serves the nine counties of the Memphis metropolitan area to connect employers with training and hiring resources, create employer-driven training programs centered around career pathways, and support students and job candidates through career exploration and training. Simply put, GMACW envisions employers having the talent they need to compete and the people the skills they need to get good jobs.
