Emmitt Franklin is an operator at LyondellBasell, a member of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Communities that Work Partnership initiative in greater Houston. Through this program, area employers, economic and workforce development organizations, community colleges and K-12 education leaders, and non-profits are partnering to develop a talent pipeline for local employers to fill job openings in key sectors.
The Department of Commerce created the Communities that Work Partnership with the Aspen Institute to facilitate seven regional industry-led training partnerships that help workers like Emmitt acquire the skills they need for quality jobs.
