From the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals (NAWDP):
Workforce Development Professionals Month was created in 2005 by the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals (NAWDP) to raise awareness about the importance of the workforce development industry to a growing national economy. In support of these efforts, the U.S. Senate recently passed a resolution naming September 2021 Workforce Development Month.

Says NAWDP: “As a highly-skilled workforce development professional, you provide critical links in your community between businesses looking to hire the pool of job seekers, and education, training, and support resources. By carrying out a a few simple activities, you can help remind political leaders, businesses, educational agencies, economic development organizations, labor unions, and customers about the value your programs and services bring to the local economy.”
