Chamber recognized by SW Ohio Workforce Investment Board
The Southwest Ohio Region Workforce Investment Board (SWORWIB) recognized the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber with a Super Partner Award, for its deep support of the SWORWIB, and for its commitment to a skilled and educated workforce in Greater Cincinnati. The Chamber was recognized Feb. 14 at the fifth annual Super Awards ceremony during the SWORWIB annual meeting at the SuperJobs Center.
The Chamber and Mayor Mark Mallory were singled out for special awards. The SWORWIB also recognized 12 public and private employers for their commitment to mentoring and employing youth, those from disadvantaged backgrounds, and people who are currently unemployed.
“These employers set the standard when it comes to demonstrating a commitment to ‘growing our own’ or giving those who have been out of the workforce for a while the opportunity to start again,” said Sherry Kelley Marshall, President/CEO of the SWORWIB. “We are also very grateful to the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber for its commitment to the SWORWIB, and to Mayor Mallory for his advocacy on behalf of our city, its people, its employers and its workforce.”
The Southwest Ohio Region Workforce Investment Board is a nonprofit organization serving the City of Cincinnati and Hamilton County in workforce development. The board is comprised of leaders from business, education, labor, and government, with the majority of its board members representing the business sector. SWORWIB sets the vision, policy direction, and performance expectations for the regional workforce development system, including the SuperJobs Center at 1916 Central Parkway.
