The Secretary's 21st Century Workforce Initiative
On March 6, 2001, Labor Secretary Elaine L. Chao announced the creation of a new Office of the 21st Century Workforce in her first major policy address at the Department of Labor.
The 21st Century workforce is not just about making sure that Silicon Valley has enough engineers. Its mission is to provide hope — to ensure that all American workers have the opportunity to equip themselves with the necessary tools to succeed in their careers and in whatever field they choose in this new and dynamic global economy. This is a time of tremendous change across the country and across the globe. America's 21st Century workforce needs to adjust to the changes of the 21st Century economy. These changes include a fundamental transformation for all industries and increasingly require higher skill sets and higher education.
