The Governor's Summit on Workforce Solutions is an annual conference that provides an opportunity to enhance the partnerships between employers, workforce and economic development professionals, educators and other state and local partners.
As the employment landscape across Wyoming continues to change the Wyoming Workforce Development Council remains committed to assisting Wyoming companies in addressing their workforce issues to remain competitive and increase prosperity. Every year, the Council renews its investment in Wyoming's most important workforce asset, its workers. By investing in industry partnerships the Council is taking a proactive approach to solving the recruitment, development and retention issues that Wyoming's industries face. More importantly these partnerships represent a commitment to Wyoming's workers by ensuring that jobs that pay good wages and provide benefits are available now and in the future. The Annual Summit is an opportunity to examine and expand those partnerships.
In partnership with the Governor's Office and the Department of Workforce Services the Council sponsors the Annual Governor's Summit on Workforce Solutions.
