Illinois Defines Career Pathways

Illinois has defined what career pathways are for stakeholders in the state. LINCS member, and CLASP senior policy analyst, Judy Mortude, recently noted that “... trusted advocates worked with state agencies and policymakers ... to develop a single definition of career pathways and provide guidance to practitioners”.

The Illinois definition is based on WIOA, and the Higher Education Act.  Does this resemble what your state is doing in terms of bringing partners together to define career pathways, and the quality of its implementation across partners?  Where are you with coming up with, and using a shared definition and framework?
