The Governor's Office of Workforce Development (GOWD) was created in August 2006 to improve the job training and marketability of Georgia's workforce and drive future economic growth for the state. GOWD was established to implement state workforce development policy as directed by the Governor and to serve as staff to the Georgia Workforce Investment Board.
GOWD works with macro-level workforce and employment issues to help Georgia be competitive economically in the southeast, the nation and across the world. Our office believes in the importance of soft-skill education for career success.
GOWD is committed to working with the Georgia Department of Labor to build Georgia's workforce. For more information on programs offered through GDOL visit http://www.dol.state.ga.us/.
