Saint Louis, Missouri is Preparing for a Workforce Revolution

SLATE Executive Director, Dr. Alice M. Prince, calls to improve service accessibility for disenfranchised St. Louisans, communities across the U.S.

Dr. Alice Prince[ST. LOUIS, MO - JUNE 28, 2018] – Beginning July 1, 2018, the St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment (SLATE) will be sparking a Workforce Revolution in the City of St. Louis. SLATE is the Workforce Division, Office of the Mayor for the City of St. Louis.

The concept of a Workforce Revolution was sparked by Dr. Alice M. Prince, the Executive Director of Workforce for the City of St. Louis, after attending the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Boston, in June 2018. The U.S. Conference of Mayors is arguably one of the most impressive conferences in the nation. Hundreds of Mayors from cities around the country convene to hear best practices, learn from one another, and gain information about other issues that impact cities on the local level. Leaving the conference, Dr. Prince was energized, and had two lofty goals – start a Workforce Revolution in the City of St. Louis, and spark Workforce Revolutions all over the country. “We need a Workforce Revolution to change the trajectory of our community, our future, or politics, and most importantly, how we handle our most precious capital in the United States – human capital,” says Dr. Prince. The City of St. Louis, like other cities around the country, are plagued with high murder and crime rates and high unemployment rates. Something has to change.
