WorkSource System Conference

WorkSource System Conference

The WorkSource System Conference is an annual event that offers professional development and networking opportunities. 

The Spokane Workforce Council invites participants from WorkSource, the Next Generation Zone, YWCA, Goodwill, Spokane Community College, Spokane Falls Community College, Spokane County Libraries, and Spokane Public Libraries to gather together for a full day of professional development and networking. All of these organizations work together to prepare job seekers for success and support employers in finding great local talent, and we are committed to providing consistent, high-quality professional development for this group of talented colleagues. We anticipate growing the event in the future and opening it to the public.


This year we expect nearly 150 professionals to join us at Gonzaga’s Hemmingson Center.

Date: June 21, 2019

Time: 8:30am-4:40pm

Theme: Business as Customer. The program will include training sessions on social justice, serving customers with disabilities, new system tools, lessons on how to provide excellent services to our business partners, and more.

In its inaugural year, we hosted 120 attendees from WorkSource, Next Generation Zone, YWCA, Spokane Community College, Spokane Falls Community College, Spokane County Library District and Spokane Public Libraries. We offered 12 workshops with over 30 speakers, a morning keynote, and a lunchtime panel discussion with HR professionals from local businesses. A team of leaders from WorkSource and Connection Sites worked together to design the program, ensuring sessions would be of interest to staff and provide relevant professional development.
