The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), represents the first major reform of the public workforce system in more than 15 years. Achieving WIOA’s ambitious goals requires significant changes to workforce development programs, including improved collaboration across agencies, workforce boards, employers, and educational institutions; a greater focus on outcomes and efficiency; and better engagement with job seekers and employers.  
The Governing Institute surveyed workforce officials from across the country to assess the progress made and top-challenges states still face as they implement WIOA. Listen to the archived webinar recording to learn about the key findings from the survey. PLUS: hear from state leaders and workforce experts about their WIOA programs.
