Our MWA Strategic priorities and goals provides a road map for MWA staff and the MWA Board of Directors to ensure the decisions and direction of the organization are aligned with its strategic plan. This plan was voted on and approved in March 2023 by the MWA Board of Directors. 


Provide thought leadership in the field of workforce development through research, marketing and communication. Raise the visibility of the MassHire system’s value proposition to businesses and policymakers across the state, elevate innovation and support diversity, equity and inclusion efforts in the workforce system. 


Promote a broad public policy workforce agenda that informs federal, state, and local workforce policies and budgets. Position the regional MassHire workforce boards and career centers as valued and essential partners in state and federal policymaking, build partnerships with associations and coalitions with shared goals, and demonstrate the system’s effectiveness in addressing workforce challenges to maintain state and federal investments.



Organize and facilitate events, roundtables, meetings, peer learning and professional development sessions for members and the broader workforce community. Catalyze the voice of the MassHire system and partners, elevate effective practice and innovation, and engage the broader workforce community in learning and networking.
