Our Commitment is Key

Our Board of Directors charts a path to support the mission and vision of Charlotte Works. These committed community members hail from a variety of backgrounds, representing a broad range of the region’s businesses, industries, educational institutions, and organizations. For strategic purposes, our Board is broken into three committees: Economic Mobility, Labor Market Intelligence, and System Capacity-Building.

Whether through our business services, community partnerships, youth and young adult programs, or data resources, our dedicated staff follows through on the objectives and initiatives determined by our Board.
