Subject: [May 31] Join us in building the workforce of the future.
Dear community members,
Workforce Solutions Capital Area will be joined by Commissioner Travillion and Mayor Adler for a media and community engagement session at Workforce Solutions Capital Area’s North Center on May 31. At this time, we will publicly launch the “Hire Local” plan and announce a sizable solution to close the gap between the number of local jobs available and the amount of skilled workers qualified to fill them.
Why it matters: We have an affordability gap in Austin. One concrete way we can address this issue is with more training opportunities. Austinites are higher-skilled and earning more after receiving services from Workforce Solutions Capital Area. Expanded training opportunities available through Workforce Solutions are possible thanks to funding from Travis County and the City of Austin.
If you plan to join us for this conversation with city and county leaders, please RSVP:
