About the Governor's Workforce Cabinet

The Governor’s Workforce Cabinet (GWC) was formed in 2018 with the mission of addressing current and future education and employment needs for individuals and employers, strengthening Indiana’s economy by integrating and aligning state and federal resources, and ensuring a talent-driven education and workforce system. The membership of the GWC includes the business community, K-12 representatives, postsecondary institutions, Indiana lawmakers, and leaders from Indiana state agencies.

GWC Strategic Plan: The GWC led the development of Indiana's Strategic Workforce Plan in 2020. The full plan, an executive summary, and an overview are linked here: Snapshot, Executive SummaryFull Plan  

The Plan covers a 4-year timespan. Federally required updates and modifications were recently made and the latest published version of the Plan can be accessed on the U.S. Department of Labor's website or here.
