NAWB is the national voice for Workforce Development Boards, the regional and local business-led organizations that convene and collaborate to reduce unemployment and boost economic development by aligning Federal, State, and local investments in preparing job seekers and connecting employers with a highly-skilled workforce. NAWB defines and advocates for federal policies and funding that enable Workforce Development Boards to help businesses find and retain the talent they need to power local and regional economies. NAWB helps 500 state and local workforce boards leverage more than $8 billion in annual federal funding to support local and regional worker training initiatives that help America develop a highly-skilled workforce that can compete in the global economy.
“The Forum supports and enhances outcomes for businesses, whose success depends on a skilled talent pipeline.”
