Dear Esteemed Community Partners and Colleagues,

 

It has been an honor and a privilege to work closely with you all as San Francisco’s Director of Workforce Development these past 5+ years. It has been a joy to help support your programs and to develop so many new initiatives with you on behalf of the communities we serve. Together we have established new policies, practices, and frameworks that I have been excited to share, often side by side with so many of you, with other workforce development boards around the state and country.

 

At last week’s workforce board meeting, I shared that I’m transitioning out of my role as Director of Workforce Development at the end of the month and I invite you all to join us at the “Working Together 2023” event onWednesday September 27 from 5-7 PM (7 PM or beyond!) at Bissap Baobab, located at 2243 Mission Street, for what I hope will become a new annual tradition at the workforce shop after I’m gone.

 

“Working Together” celebrates National Workforce Development Month, our community and labor partners, and outgoing workforce leaders. This year’s inaugural event highlights the work that we collectively do in workforce development to recruit, train and support job seekers and workers on behalf of the community and society. We will also recognize those who have transitioned onto their next chapters as part of the continuum of leadership development in this work, including longtime workforce folks like Jeff Mori, David Taylor and myself.

 

I am grateful to Mayor London Breed for her faith in appointing me to this role in the summer of 2018, and it’s been a pleasure and inspiration to spend 5+ years working alongside our amazing OEWD team and all of our community, labor Union, business, education, and government partners.

 

I hope to see you all on the 27th, and please RSVP if you can to Armina Brown at ladiirobinson@gmail.com.

 

Lastly, please let us all never forget to, as Human Rights Commission Director Dr. Sheryl Davis says, “Celebrate Community” each and every day.

 

Thank you all,

 

Josh
