The San Diego Workforce Partnership has received proclamations by the San Diego City Council and County Board of Supervisors naming September Workforce Development Month and recognizing SDWP’s leadership in workforce development and providing work-readiness training to San Diegans for 40 years.

The County of San Diego Board of Supervisors presented the first proclamation during its Sept. 16 meeting (top photo). The City presented its proclamation during its Council meeting on Sept. 23.

“We are honored to receive these proclamations from the City and County,” says Peter Callstrom, president and CEO of SDWP. “We are proud of the work we do to ensure that every business in our region has access to a skilled workforce and every job seeker has access to employment. Our entire staff and boards greatly appreciate this recognition. Most importantly, this honors our workforce — the women and men who are striving for new jobs and careers in our region.” 

In addition to the local recognition, September was designated National Workforce Development Month as part of a national campaign led by the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals (NAWDP), an organization that advocates for the workforce industry. National Workforce Development Month honors the professionals who play a vital role in meeting the needs of local employers and job seekers, and promotes the value of workforce development in contributing to the nation’s economy.
