   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1.  Legislative  intent. In order to promote economic growth,
 New York must pursue a workforce that is both skilled  and  diverse.  In
 pursuit  of  this  goal,  the legislature seeks to identify sectors that
 will benefit from additional workforce development, further identify  in
 which  of  those  sectors  women  are  historically underrepresented and
 increase the number of women trained to work in those sectors.
   § 2. The labor law is amended by adding a new section 10-d to read  as
 follows:

 SECTION:

 POLICY  FOR WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT WITHIN THE LOCAL AREA, AS SET FORTH IN
 SECTION 107 OF THE FEDERAL WORKFORCE INNOVATION AND OPPORTUNITY  ACT  OF
 2014 (PUBLIC LAW NO. 113-128); AND
   (B) "NEW YORK STATE UNDERREPRESENTED WOMEN'S INCENTIVE AWARD" MEANS AN
 AWARD  THAT  PROVIDES EITHER FREE TUITION OR AN EDUCATIONAL GRANT AS SET
 FORTH IN SECTION SIX HUNDRED SIXTY-NINE-I OF THE EDUCATION LAW, OR  THAT
 COVERS  COSTS  ASSOCIATED  WITH  ENROLLMENT IN A CERTIFICATION OR DESIG-
 NATION PROGRAM.
   2. EACH LOCAL WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT BOARD SHALL CONVENE, AT LEAST ONCE
 ANNUALLY, A GROUP OF STAKEHOLDERS TO IDENTIFY  SECTORS  FOR  GROWTH  AND
