Credential Attainment and Work-Based Learning Data Center
How Credential Attainment Impacts Economic and Social Mobility
The work of the Rocky Mountain Partnership is to improve economic and social mobility for all community members, specifically for those marginalized because of race, ethnicity, gender, disability, zip code, or circumstance. The Partnership measures economic and social mobility at the highest level by monitoring the following ultimate impact dials:
|Postsecondary Credential Attainment||Self-Sufficient Wage||Overall Employment Rates|
There are so many data points that tell the story of a community members’ journey to attain a skill or credential. But that journey looks different for each individual, and our community’s data clearly shows how certain populations have been disproportionately impacted due to race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic, status, etc.
As you scroll through this data and read about what is impacting our community members, take note of the equity gaps and opportunities to support our most marginalized populations.
