Workforce Programs & Initiatives
Trailhead Workforce Programs & Initiatives (WPI) activate public and environmental health career entry pathways and innovative workforce sustainability strategies and help develop and advance the evolving public and environmental health workforce. With an approach oriented toward equity and inclusion, WPI efforts engage partners across multiple sectors and interdisciplinary areas that influence public and environmental health.
WPI leads, supports, and partners on guided learning experiences and develops data-inspired workforce capacity building resources for learners, employees, and employers. In addition to these efforts, WPI leverages continuous efforts to infuse the public and environmental health workforce as integral to broader workforce development programs, initiatives, and advocacy.
