Colorado Workforce Development Council (CWDC)

The Colorado Workforce Development Council (CWDC) is a Governor-appointed, public-private partnership that aims to enhance and sustain a skills-based talent development network in order to meet the needs of employers, workers, job seekers, and learners.

The organization offers a variety of no-cost programs and assistance to help Colorado businesses measure and improve the quality of their jobs. The CWDC provides support to local stakeholders and partners, such as workforce professionals, to engage in job quality efforts, and acts on behalf of the Governor on policy matters related to programs and activities funded by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).

The CWDC was formed under the federal Workforce Investment Act of 1998 and is responsible for the continuous improvement of the workforce system, oversight of WIOA funds, and ensuring a statewide strategic vision created from the bottom up through Council members and local partners.
