Duluth Workforce Development Board

The Duluth Workforce Development Board identifies and aligns workforce development strategies to meet the needs of Duluth area employers and job seekers through comprehensive and coordinated systems.
An engaged and diverse workforce, where all individuals, regardless of background, have or are on a path to meaningful employment and a family sustaining wage, and all employers are able to fill jobs in demand.
Duluth Workforce Development Board
The Duluth Workforce Development Board provides strategic guidance for the broad partnerships that make up the local workforce development system – a “one-stop” service delivery system for area jobseekers and employers. The collective goal is to build a workforce with the skills employers seek, in order to help strengthen and maintain the area’s economy. Employers benefit by hiring workers with the skills they need for business success; workers benefit by achieving and maintaining economic self-sufficiency for themselves and their families.

As required by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (Public Law 113-128) and Duluth Workforce Development Board bylaws, the composition of the board shall include:

  • 51% representatives of local businesses;
  • 20% workforce representatives, including at least two labor union representatives, as well as community organizations and representatives of organizations that serve youth;
  • At least one provider administering adult education and literacy activities;
  • At least one representative from an institution of higher education;
  • At least one representative from economic and community development entities;
  • At least one representative from the state Employment Service office;
  • At least one representative from Vocational Rehabilitation Services.
