Rejuvenation. Innovation. Engagement. These terms describe what happen when workforce development professionals come together to hone their craft.

Maybe it was hearing Jim Clifton speak at the NAWB Forum that has you focused on building a “strengths-based” workforce system. We will provide the map, you provide the car, and together let’s take workforce development into the next decade.
