PWDA Training & Events 

PWDA hosts multiple trainings and events throughout the year that target workforce development   professionals and stakeholders across Pennsylvania, including our Annual Conference and Symposium. All events are tailored to meet the professional development and capacity building priorities established by PWDA members and stakeholders as well as lifting up awareness on best practices, success stories and trends!  

PWDA Annual Conference
Acclaimed for its informative and engaging speakers across more than 60 workshops and keynotes, this yearly event offers opportunities to network with professionals and partners working at all levels of the workforce development system. Staff of local workforce development areas, partner agencies, and a blend government, training, and vendor circles gather during this event for important information, to see and be seen, and for timely training and updates on important subjects.

The conference features an exhibit hall with the most up-to-date, relevant products and partnerships.  Attendees can meet a variety of workforce product and service providers and build relationships they can rely on well into the future

Governor’s Achievement Awards are presented by PWDA and several state agencies to honor exceptional Pennsylvania employers for their contributions and support of the commonwealth’s workforce development system, as well as outstanding individual participants in workforce development, human services, and aging employment and training programs who have overcome obstacles and achieved success.
