AlabamaWorks is excited to announce the second annual Innovator Awards to be presented to an innovator in each workforce region at the 2021 AlabamaWorks Virtual Conference. The awards were developed to highlight people and programs across the state that take an innovative approach to solve workforce challenges and help advance Governor Ivey’s Success Plus attainment goal of adding 500,000 highly skilled workers by 2025.
The recipient of the award can be an individual, group, organization, school system, teacher, business, consortium, or non-profit organization that is innovative in advancing workforce initiatives. The awards will be presented by Governor Ivey at the final session of the conference (Wednesday, September 22, 2021, at 11:45 am). All nomination forms must be submitted by August 1, 2021. Each regional workforce council will make the final selection of the Innovator Award for their respective region.
