The GWDB Taskforce Groups are essential catalysts to Marylandís job creation and economic recovery at the local, regional, and state levels. The Taskforce Groups are comprised of stakeholders from business, workforce, education, non-profit, and union leadership representing: Advanced Manufacturing, Changing Demographics, Cybersecurity, Information Technology, Healthcare and Life Sciences, Marketing and Branding, and Skilled Trades.
We are bringing these important leaders together in order to better understand what skills employers need today and how they predict their future workforce needs in Maryland. The goal is to develop strategies and investments that are targeted to the specific recommendations of our in-demand industries in the state.
The GWDB Taskforce Groups will advise and make recommendations to the administration on workforce development programs, as well as long term impactful goals that will shift the states workforce in a positive way for the future. The GWDB staff supports the Taskforce Groups by providing guidance, technical assistance, and research.
