TAWB is a not-for-profit association representing the local workforce development boards in Texas and more than 750 of the business, education and community leaders who serve on those boards. Our goal is to ensure a highly skilled, well-trained talent supply for Texas employers and an employer-driven workforce system. We seek to achieve this goal by providing information and facilitating communication among the Texas business community, educational providers and state and federal officials.
Developing and improving our present and future workforce is essential to Texas’ ability to compete in the global economy. Likewise, aligning and integrating education and workforce development is vital to our economic growth and prosperity. The investments in education and workforce development necessary to realize this prosperity are investments in economic development, whether made by an individual, a business or the government.
TAWB’s board member representatives are private business and community leaders from communities across Texas who serve or have served as leaders of their regional workforce boards. The hands-on business and workforce development expertise of its board representative members uniquely positions TAWB and its member representatives to advise on education, training and workforce development policies for the state’s incumbent and emerging workforce and to assist in building a true employer driven workforce development system. TAWB also provides a forum for its members to share best practices in workforce development.
