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 20 full-service state workforce centers, determine federal workforce grant allocations, and establish and oversee Next Gen Sector Partnerships.
We foster collaboration with entities across the state to support and drive workforce development for Wyoming.
Through the work that we do, we will continue to move Wyoming toward a well-equipped and well-trained workforce that is prepared to meet the demands and opportunities of the future.
WWDC’s key goals help us stay motivated and focused on serving Wyoming’s workforce:
Use an integrated approach to increase the effectiveness of the Workforce Development System
Increase internal and external communication and outreach efforts
Provide customized support and resources to meet the diverse needs of Wyoming employers and job seekers
Develop and strengthen partnerships to leverage available resources
Use the career pathways system to prepare the Wyoming workforce for career opportunities in all industries
Next Generation Sector Partnerships
Next Generation Sector Partnerships is a national program that helps guide our local workforce towards the economic opportunities of the region by fostering collaboration between the private and public sectors. Together, we ensure our local workforce is equipped to answer the call through private sector leadership, with the support and direct engagement of public sector partners.
