Good Governance and Open Meetings

The Governor’s Workforce Development Board (GWDB) serves as the primary leader of workforce policy in the State of Nevada through examining the statewide workforce development system, creating the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) State Plan, and recommending policy improvements of the workforce development system to the Governor’s Office and the Governor’s Office of Workforce Innovation (GOWINN). The GWDB is codified by NRS 232.935 and administered by GOWINN. GOWINN’s Policy Analyst, Katie Gilbertson, serves as the liaison to the Board by organizing each meeting and providing research and technical assistance to the Board members. Every four years, the GWDB submits a new WIOA State Plan to the U.S. Department of Labor, along with submitting revisions of the State Plan to the U.S. Department of Labor every two years.

The Executive Committee is comprised of eight members who meet once a month in between Full Board meetings. The Executive Committee is tasked with overseeing the performance of the Full Board, mapping out future focus topics for the Board, and reviewing select policy changes before they are presented to the Full Board. Additionally, there are two GWDB Subcommittees that meet on a quarterly basis: the Strategic Planning Subcommittee and the Barriers and Underserved Populations Subcommittee.
