Sustainable Development Goals 2020-2030

Unlocking Our Human Potential

Innovation in Motion is part of an industry focused, design based, applied research framework that studies how best systems connect and improve in public good ecosystems.

Workforce systems are best envisioned with stakeholders including employers. Industry allows for multiple businesses and community partners, all sharing in the outcomes.

Design Based Research Initiative

The SMARTSEC platform connects learners and Job seekers to careers, employers to human capital resources through sector partnerships that close skill gaps via an enterprise, solution based, industry service provider system.

Regional Workforce Training Systemsed Research Initiative

Stronger Building Together

Coordinating resources for in-country project implementation, particularly large projects, require a systems process.  Community endorsed infrastructure projects are complex and engaging.  Coordinating suppliers and buyers in an inclusive manner has the benefit of innovation and creates an ecosystem that serves a greater good.

"Building international relationships with family and friends breeds trust.  Industry can help build a network from the power of culture

Opportunity has created a common connection point our 65,000 U.S. companies can reach and create prosperity.  Building a regional workforce solution abroad should start with our largest trading partner."

"Innovation knows no geographic boundaries. People of courage and integrity can come together to transform our economy and our capacity to create bridges by extending our hand in agreement."

"The promise of a global economy has passed and we now find ourselves connected in every way.  Technology does more than connect opportunity to skill, it is also a tool for democracy and a leverage towards peace and growth."

Our international program development includes evidence based approaches like applying the Strategic Prevention Framework (often used for substance abuse) to Global Resilience Training and Technical Assistance.

SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework

Economic Inclusion is both a moral imperative and a driving force towards community resilience.  The utilization of a prevention framework to create and sustain change requires collaboration, analysis, capacity, planing and prioritization of strategies and action plans. 

Building a credible process requires relevancy and cultural competence.  Building consensus and solidarity among community leaders and influences is the first step of many when considering and sustaining trust and fidelity in community planning, particularly when racial or economic barriers are working to mitigage success.  

CEBOTWorld  Executive Office

As our Members invest their time and money in the principle based funds programs and initiatives there will be both risks and opportunities to monitor, manage or mitigate.  Our joint capacity and desire for community growth is worth protecting.
