IAWP Washington is proud to announce Eleni Papadakis, executive director of the state’s Workforce Board, will be joining us at Winter Institute.

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) reauthorizes and amends the Workforce Investment Act. Washington’s Workforce Board has been tasked by the Governor with coordinating the planning and implentation of the Act in our state–and Employment Security has been playing an important role.

Eleni will share how our agencies work together to meet the Governor’s vision to:

  • Help more people find and keep jobs that lead to economic self-sufficiency, with a focus on disadvantaged populations;
  • Close skill gaps for employers, with a focus on in-demand industry sectors and occupations; and
  • Work together as a single, seamless team to make this happen.
