Local Plan/MOUs/One-Stop Operator
The SWC wanted to ensure our plan reflects the diverse voices of our stakeholders and helps us build a system that continues to improve and better meets the needs of our community. To support this effort in the development of our plan, the SWC sent an email survey on February 19, 2020 to our wide array of stakeholders from workforce development (service providers, human services, community-based organizations), education and training (K-12, postsecondary, technical, trades, apprenticeship), and business (targeted industries, HR professionals, recruiters, talent acquisition) sectors.
We then convened community dialogue sessions on Tuesday, March 3, 2020 and Wednesday, March 4, 2020 where we shared and discussed the survey results with attendees and solicited additional feedback. Both the survey results and the feedback from those sessions was incorporated into the draft plan, which was release for a 30-day public comment period on March 10, 2020.
Following the close of the public comment period, the plan was finalized and approved by the board of the Spokane Workforce Council on June 10, 2020, and submitted to the State Workforce Board.
