Share your feedback on Workforce Plans
The County of Los Angeles Workforce Development, Aging and Community Services and the Los Angeles County Workforce Development Board released the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Regional and Local Plans. These plans will guide the public workforce system in the County through 2020. The public is encouraged to provide feedback to these plans through Friday, March 3, 2017. Public comment will be taken into consideration, and the plans will be updated accordingly.
“These landmark regional and local plans unite diverse public and private partners throughout the County of Los Angeles around a shared approach to develop a skilled and competitive workforce that meets the needs of businesses and employers,” said Cynthia Banks, Director of Workforce Development, Aging and Community Services, Los Angeles County.
The regional plan outlines a shared vision for the development of a skilled workforce that meets the needs of businesses and establishes resident’s career pathways in high-growth, priority sectors. The local plan outlines how the County’s system of America’s Job Centers of California will provide local on-ramps to these career pathways.
The local and regional plans were developed through a months-long collaborative process between the greater Los Angeles region’s seven Workforce Development Boards that consist of representatives from education and training, community advocates, and business backgrounds.
