MADISON, September 10, 2021 – In recognition of the critical role that workforce development services, programs and partnerships play in Wisconsin, Gov. Tony Evers issued a proclamation declaring September as Workforce Development Month.

The proclamation follows the U.S. Congress’ resolution to designate September as National Workforce Development Month. The resolution points to the investments in the education, training and career advancement of the workforce that are crucial for the nation to compete in the global economy.

During the month, the WDBSCW and its partners will be featuring stories, resources, announcements and opportunities available to workers and employers to advance their careers and businesses.

The WDBSCW continues to support local, state and federal investments in workforce development strategies in South Central Wisconsin. Programs include those under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, which supported more than 700 workers last year with skill training and employment connections. Additional initiatives include those focused on work-based learning and apprenticeship programs, along with business services and industry partnerships.

Examples of current initiatives focused on workforce advancement include:
