Public Sector

As part of our mission of SETWC, we will be engaging public sector stakeholders in the region to:

  • Identify regional transportation job sector needs and priorities specific to the public sector,
  • Catalogue existing workforce development programs and best practices,
  • Identify workforce gaps and areas of need in the pubic sector,
  • Facilitate partnerships to address these gaps, and
  • Align the transportation workforce pipeline efforts and programming to regional job needs and priorities.

Opportunities for involvement include joining our steering committee, participating in SETWC stakeholder meetings, providing information about existing training programs for public sector employees for inclusion in the SETWC compendium. For more information, or to get involved, contact SETWC's public sector coordinator, Meredith Powers.
