Investing in California's Workforce

Our mission aligns with your mission

The availability of skilled workforce talent is critically important to business and industry. EWD's investments in California's workforce provide solutions for attracting, retaining and growing California businesses.

Because EWD is part of the California Community Colleges, business and industry can leverage our state-funded programs and services. Last year alone, EWD leveraged close to $50,000,000 in funding for business and industry. This is a viable attraction and retention tool for economic developers.

Our Economic Development Partners

California Association for Local Economic Development (CALED)
Economic Development Associations include counties, cities, state and federal agencies, economic development corporations, and economic development professionals. These entities are useful in determining the economic impact of business attraction, expansion, and retention activities as they relate to business and industry training needs. CALED, the statewide membership organization, supports economic development professionals through information, technical assistance, training, education, and research to its members.
