The DC Workforce Investment Council (WIC) is a group of public and private organizations empowered to advise the Mayor and District government on:
- Developing, implementing, and continuously improving the District's Workforce Investment system;
- Enhancing and developing accountability and performance systems;
- Developing and encouraging private sector participation; and
- Encouraging public input and support.
The Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) has administrative oversight of the WIC. Under the direction of Deputy Mayor Victor L. Hoskins and Executive Director Allison Gerber, the WIC will oversee the creation and improvement of services and programs that address the workforce development needs of the region's employers and the District's residents.
Members of the WIC include representatives from the private sector, local business representatives, government officials, organized labor, youth, community groups, and organizations with workforce investment experience. The WIC is responsible for developing a five-year strategic workforce investment plan for the District. The plan encourages the fostering of regional partnerships and support from surrounding jurisdictions, assessing the effectiveness of local and regional workforce investment activities, and assisting local and regional employers in meeting hiring needs.
