Midlands Workforce Development Board
Workforce Development Boards' (WDB) are a critical component of the Public Workforce system. Whether you are a job seeker or represent a business, the Midlands Workforce Development Board (MWDB) is your local connection to the U.S. Department of Labor and state Employment and Training programs.
In addition to the WIOA program, the MWDB operates the SC Works / American Job Centers in Fairfield, Lexington and Richland Counties, and serves a leading convener of workforce system partners and stakeholders. This includes local and regional planning, creating partnerships, and leveraging resources for community, economic and workforce development.
The MWDB, by federal mandate, must be composed of more than 50 percent private sector business leaders. This composition ensures that the board is a dynamic organization with a direct connection to the business community.
