We love to see our Employer Innovation Fund awardees in action!

The Iowa Restaurant Association was one of the recipients of the Future Ready Iowa Employer Innovation Fund. The $50,000 award helps them run the Iowa ProStart program, where high school chefs are placed into professional kitchens for training and mentoring.

Part of the funding helps them put on the Iowa ProStart Program Invitational, where teams of high school chefs from across the state compete against each other...and the clock.

At our employer rountable at the North Central Correctional Facility we heard how returning citzens should not be overlooked as members of the workforce talent pool.

We're working with the Iowa Department of Corrections and Governor Kim Reynolds to make sure those who are incarcerated have the skills they need to get a fresh start, and that employers look to them to help fill open positions.
