Mission and vision

WWDA plays an important role in bringing citizen involvement, engagement, and oversight to the state‚Äôs workforce development efforts. We are currently providing strategic leadership for workforce development through several initiatives.

Made up of leaders from business, education, community organizations, and state and local governments, Wisconsin's Workforce Boards forge practical solutions to workforce challenges and provide leadership on initiatives that are of strategic importance.


The WWDA brings together the leadership of the eleven regional workforce development areas (WDAs) in Wisconsin to develop and implement statewide workforce strategies, and build a stronger workforce for Wisconsin to meet the needs of growing businesses.
