iWorks Kickoff Meeting
October 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
The Northwest Georgia Workforce Development Board recently completed a sector partnership strategy as part of the Governor’s High Demand Career Initiative (HDCI) program, an effort led by Georgia Tech’s Enterprise Innovation Institute. Governor Deal launched HDCI in 2014 as a response to hearing from businesses in Georgia about their workforce development challenges. To implement workforce solutions at the local and regional level, the state supported the development of regional sector partnerships through local workforce boards. With the support and guidance from many of you, the Northwest Georgia region spent the past year developing a sector strategy that built an infrastructure of communication and collaboration between the public and private sector. The resulting regional sector partnership was branded as “iWorks” (Igniting Workforce Opportunities & Reinforcing Knowledge & Skills).
Over the next several months, we will be working with iWorks to implement the strategy. You have been identified as a critical partner in the launch of iWorks and the successful implementation of the strategy. We are holding a kick-off meeting for the strategy’s implementation at 12pm on October 24th at the Gordon County Agricultural Center, can we count on you to attend? Lunch will be provided.
