The Library Workforce Connection (LWC) is a group of DPI staff and system representatives that grew out of the LAWDS workforce development grants from a few years ago. LWC continues to meet monthly, and we’ll soon be planning our activities for 2024.

Is there a workforce development topic you’d like to learn more about? Do you run a program that’s making a difference to your local job seekers or employers that you’d like to brag about? Do you have other ideas or suggestions for LWC? Email Teresa Schmidt to pass along your ideas for our 2024 planning. 

In November 2023, LWC hosted a presentation from WisCaregiver Careers, a free program designed to connect job seekers with employers in the healthcare field, especially CNAs. If you’d like posters or brochures to share with your patrons, SCLS is distributing some extra materials. Use this form to order
