Local, state and national partnerships are key to The Nevada Registry's past, current and future success as a workforce data system in Nevada. While these partnerships vary in depth and breadth, ranging from basic involvement on the Registry Advisory Committee to providing significant program support (both financially and in-kind), all are viewed as instrumental in the ongoing implementation and success of the program. Our partnerships are continually growing and changing in order to remain responsive to the needs and growth of the program.
The list below is not an exhaustive list of all of our partners, but simply a highlight of a few of the primary programs and partnerships that have had the greatest impact on the Registry to date. Additional information will be added as new collaborations are formed. Click on any box below to learn more about the highlighted agency/program.
