The LMI Institute continues in 2022 with its Voices of LMI initiative to showcase and promote the great work being done with workforce data around the country. Institute staff are currently conducting interviews with various LMI leaders and researchers to produce brief video stories of what different members and partner organizations do and how the work is being used to make a difference. This installment is an interview with Amy Faulkner, LMI Institute Chair and Chief Deputy Director, California Employment Development Department.
