About Us

The Workforce Intelligence Network for Southeast Michigan (WIN) helps to cultivate a comprehensive and cohesive talent system to ensure employers’ success.

WIN is a partnership of 10 community colleges and 6 Michigan Works! Agencies in southeast Michigan. WIN’s mission is to cultivate a comprehensive and cohesive talent system to ensure employers find the workers they need for success. WIN specializes in fostering collaboration among talent partners, including workforce development, community colleges, four-year postsecondary institutions, K-12 schools, economic development organizations, government, community based organizations, employers, and others.

Activities at WIN are centered around three goals: data, employer strategies, and policy.


Provide current and actionable labor market intelligence to allow for greater regional talent system effectiveness.


Strengthen and sustain an employer-driven talent system that serves as a resource hub and connection point for regional businesses, industries, and other stakeholders.


Improve institutional, local, state, and federal talent development policy through research, thought leadership, and innovative practice. Special areas of focus include career pathways and data quality and access.
