As Workforce Czar, she will be responsible for building and executing strategies to implement the report’s recommendations, including establishing formal agreements with existing workforce development organizations, such as Dallas College, Workforce Solutions Greater Dallas, and other providers. “I’m excited to work with Mayor Johnson on this issue that’s so important to our city, our families and our future,” said McBee. “Workforce development will not only lift families and communities and create more opportunity and growth, but it also addresses equity, it’s a step forward in eliminating racial barriers, and it’s key to ending systemic cycles of poverty.” .
