The Boulder Chamber was also invited to showcase the important leadership role we are now playing - in collaboration with our other county-wide workforce development service partners - in meeting the workforce needs of local businesses at the TalentFound Quarterly Conversation. The TalentFound event convened the key collaborators in Colorado's efforts to enhance our workforce development ecosystem. There were featured remarks from both Governor Jared Polis and Colorado Department of Labor and Employment Executive Director Joe Barela, testifying to the importance that the Polis administration is placing on preparing our workforce to meet current and future talent needs.
Notably, the Boulder Chamber's Workforce Development Director, Corine Waldau, was invited to sit on the opening panel to describe the important role that chambers can play in achieving workforce development goals. Corine emphasized, in particular, the ability chambers have to convene a wide cross-section of workforce development assets. She also highlighted the role chambers can serve as a conduit to the full spectrum of impacted businesses and consolidating the information on workforce resources in a fashion that is most accessible to the business community. These are all roles the Boulder Chamber is playing through the Boulder Together program.
