The Workforce Arizona Council is responsible for implementing the Governor's strategic vision for a robust and effective workforce system in the State of Arizona. Consisting of industry leaders in private business, community and labor organizations, local and state government agencies, and members of the State's legislature, the Council serves as a guiding force towards a stronger Arizona workforce and labor market. The Council receives its authority from the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act which was passed by the Federal legislature in 2014 by a large bipartisan majority. This act signaled a nationwide push to "put Americans back to work" and Arizona aims to be at the forefront of this enormous effort. By guiding and supporting the Arizona Workforce System in the implementation of the Governor's vision for Arizona, the Workforce Arizona Council is helping to make a stronger Arizona.
