“Eye on the Workforce Innovation Fund” Stakeholder Series Launches March 27; Register Now for the Live Stream from the WIF Grantee Meeting in Washington D.C.

Posted by Kevin Thompson - On March 26, 2014 (EST)

The Eye on the Workforce Innovation Fund Stakeholder series, Innovating for Change, is designed to provide a national forum for the public workforce system to discuss the power and promise of innovation. The series will afford the Department of Labor the opportunity to engage nationally with its valued stakeholders and to learn about promising practices that can successfully help businesses thrive and Americans get good jobs.


The engagement series kicks off with a live stream plenary session at the 2014 National Workforce Innovation Fund (WIF) Grantee Meeting in Washington, D.C. The national broadcast will be hosted by ETA Acting Assistant Secretary Eric Seleznow, with opening remarks from U.S. Department of Labor Secretary Thomas E. Perez and Kate McAdams, Senior Advisor to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Then join two of our WIF grantee panelists online as we turn the spotlight on their programs’ strategies for engaging businesses to help Americans get jobs.
