Colorado Workforce Development Council

The Colorado Workforce Development Council (CWDC) is a Governor appointed, business led, powerful collaboration of state agencies, regional & community organizations, and plays a strategic role in coordination, alignment, and support of education, workforce, and economic development efforts in Colorado. The vision of the CWDC is that every Colorado business has access to a skilled workforce and every Coloradan has access to meaningful employment, resulting in statewide economic vitality. Through its subcommittees and task-groups, the CWDC is ensuring cross-system, public-private partnerships to create and sustain a business‐led Colorado talent system to meet the needs of businesses, students, and job-seekers. As a STEM Champion, CWDC is contributing $104,000 to support increased staffing of the regional efforts to advance STEM education in Colorado. Specifically, CWDC funding will support a STEM Associate at CEI to develop regional data portfolios to show gaps in local talent pipeline efforts, to work with local and state partners to identify resources to close gaps, and to ensure the Colorado STEM Education Roadmap is implemented across all of Colorado’s regions and extends beyond K-12 through career placement for both youth and adults.
