September Monthly Meeting: DC’s Workforce Development System

Join us at our next Monthly Meeting where CNHED will host Odie Donald, Executive Director of the DC Workforce Investment Council (WIC). 

You’ll hear about what the workforce system looks like in DC under the District’s new statewide workforce development plan, Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).  Participants will also learn about and discuss:

  • The role of the WIC
  • How the workforce system is helping to eliminate barriers to employment for residents
  • What some of the high growth industries are that support career pathways with living wages and how training programs can be supported to scale up
  • How the workforce system intersects with affordable housing
  • How the workforce plan can strengthen & create partnership opportunities for local businesses

The District’s vision for workforce is to ensure that “every DC resident is ready, able, and empowered to discover and attain their fullest potential through lifelong learning, sustained employment, and economic security.”
