Ben Baglio Joins DEED as Governor’s Workforce Development Board Coordinator
31 Jul 2019
I am excited to announce that Ben Baglio will join DEED as the Governor's Workforce Development Board (GWDB) coordinator.
The GWDB's mission is to analyze and recommend workforce development policies to the governor and legislature that ensure Minnesota has a globally competitive workforce. Board members are key leaders from business, education, labor, community-based organizations, and government. The GWDBalso has statutory responsibility under the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, which provides leadership on opportunities and key workforce strategies for the state.
In this coordinator role, Ben will support the GWDB in developing overall strategic direction and goals for Minnesota’s workforce development system, as well as provide leadership and support functions for the successful operation of the GWDB.
