Workforce Investment Board


Established by Executive Order in response to the mandate of the federal Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998, the California Workforce Investment Board (WIB) assists the Governor in setting and guiding policy in the area of workforce development. The WIB is responsible for assisting the Governor in performing the duties and responsibilities required by the WIA.

All WIB members are appointed by the Governor and represent the many facets of workforce development - business, labor, public education, higher education, economic development, youth activities, employment and training, as well as the Legislature. The WIB meets on a regular basis and the public is encouraged to attend the meetings. Decisions are reached through a collaborative process.

The WIB’s strategic plan directs its work in providing guidance to the statewide workforce investment system. The strategic plan, which runs through 2017, can be found here: http://www.cwib.ca.gov/plans_policies_state_plans.htm
