Responsibilities

The DuPage Workforce Board is a business-led policy and decision-making body. Workforce Boards were originally created under a 1998 federal law called the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), and were reauthorized in 2014 under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), with a mandate to create a workforce development system that meets the needs of employers for qualified workers and by expanding employment opportunities for residents. The DuPage Workforce Board has become a key player in the economic growth and competitiveness of our local area and the region. In this larger role, the Workforce Board functions as a convener, an innovator, and a facilitator of strategic partnerships between the private sector, non-profit agencies, educational institutions, local elected officials, local government agencies, labor, and job training and education programs.
