Building a
better Wyoming.

The Wyoming Workforce Development Council (WWDC) is a board of leaders from around the state, hand-selected by the governor to serve with statewide workforce development. Members assist the governor by ensuring the system supports robust regional and state economies and produces a high-quality, self-sufficient workforce that is highly valued by Wyoming employers.


These members advise the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services and its 18 full-service state workforce centers, determine federal workforce grant allocations, and establish and oversee Next Gen Sector Partnerships.
