Since 2008, SAWDC Alabama Works has been charged with engaging industry and serving its workforce development needs while helping to align the region’s education/training resources with that ever-shifting demand. Simply put, SAWDC works year-round to develop strategic partnerships that attract, educate and train students and workers to better meet employer needs, and that mission could not be accomplished without the ongoing financial support of the council’s dedicated and generous investors. Their support is instrumental in SAWDC’s efforts to develop a comprehensive, integrated workforce development system that creates a skilled, diverse, motivated, and adaptable workforce that better meet the needs of employers and contributes to an improved quality of life for all citizens. In turn, we would like to extend our most sincere thanks to our investors.
