WORKFORCE INVESTMENT BOARD
Louise M. Dean, Executive Director
THE VISION for the Alaska Workforce Investment Board is to "build connections that put Alaskans into good jobs." This comprehensive vision keeps the board focused on developing a workforce system that is useful, accessible and understandable to all of the system's customers, which include businesses looking for qualified workers, unemployed Alaskans looking for jobs, and incumbent workers wanting to upgrade their skills in a changing work environment.
The Board is tasked with reviewing plans and providing recommendations to the State of Alaska to further train and prepare Alaskans for the workforce - and help grow Alaska's economy.
