Workforce Advisory Committee

Mon Valley Initiative works to build strong relationships with a focused group of committed employer and training programs.

Our workforce advisory committee meets four times per year and offers guidance and feedback to MVI program staff on a variety of issues. Their advice and recommendations help our workforce program effectively meet the needs of employers throughout the Pittsburgh region.

The employers who serve on this committee have led focus groups with other employers and have been particularly helpful as staff have worked to assist people who face major barriers to employment, including criminal background issues.
