A recent survey of workforce boards by the Federal Reserve indicated that nearly 60% of WIBs have representatives from the banking industry on their boards. However, only 10% of boards had engaged Community Reinvestment Act funding to develop complementary programs. So how can WIBs better partner with this important and expanding industry sector to bring services to low-income job seekers or youth and better prepare them to enter or re-enter the workforce? The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) is legislation that puts an obligation on banks to serve all members of the community where they take deposits, and meet the credit needs of their local areas. The Federal Reserve has oversight of the CRA, and wants to develop new and innovative ways for banks to meet their requirements under the Act by serving the low to middle income population through partnerships with the workforce system. Join us NAWB CEO Ron Painter as he interviews Federal Reserve of Kansas City’s Community Development Director, Steve Shepelwich, on Monday, December 2nd at 1:00 PM. During this 30-minute interview, learn how the Federal Reserve system can help WIBs partner with local banks to create complementary programs and even identify funding streams to advance financial literacy and workforce readiness among their customers.

Can WIA funds be leveraged to assist communities during and after disaster events? How can workforce development organizations provide innovative solutions as part of a disaster response? On the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, the National Association of Workforce Boards, in conjunction with the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Disaster Management (CDM), released a new research report titled The Impact of Extreme Events on Business Organizations: Innovative Approaches to Managing Risk. In this episode of Workforce Central Radio, NAWB CEO Ron Painter interviews Dr. Louise Comfort, the Director of the CDM and author of the report. Drawing on research interviews with nine innovative WIBs who showed leadership in their communities during disaster events, they will discuss the important role workforce boards can take in helping their areas during times of disaster, the policies that should be in place to help maximize efforts, and how they can leverage existing programs and become a bridge between federal disaster programs and municipal/local efforts. Please join us on Wednesday, December 18th for this insightful interview!

What does conscious living mean? And are you in control of your life or are you a victim of what life throws at you?
When you are present in your life, you are in control of it. When you are conscious of the decisions you are making, you are in control. So where do you stand?
“A life lived of choice is a life of conscious action. A life lived of chance is a life of unconscious creation.”
- Neale Donald Walsch
Have you ever had the feeling that you’re drifting through life, and you are not going where you want to go? Or that you don’t know how you got where you are today?
Living consciously is a life style, a skill, an art. It’s a positive habit that you can form for the rest of your life. Are you ready to explore yourself and start living consciously? Join me and my Guest Villa Powell as she shares her new book: “Thirty Day Journey Toward Transformation”.

On Thursday, March 13, join NAWB CEO Ron Painter and Capital One Vice President Catherine Foca for a discussion of the problems solved when collaborative thinking is combined with a determination to reinvent the status quo.

Tonight we have the honor to hear from husband and wife team John and Charlene Donelson.
Charlene is a survivor of childhood sexual and verbal abuse. She shares her process and the trials of her childhood; how she manages to deal with the reflections that resonated in her adult life. The effects of her past experiences tried try to destroy her emotionally, physically, and spiritually. She holds onto the truth of God’s word that tells us all that, “We are overcomers by the blood of the lamb, and by the word of our testimonies”.
John is also a survivor, but of a different type of abuse. He is a product of a teenage rape, and through the abuse, or (ab-normal use) of an adult’s authority in his life, he shares about how he was exposed to ography at a very young age- that planted the seeds for an addiction. Although this is accepted in our society today, it has a lasting snowball effect on the mind and spirit that causes much pain and destruction; leaving behind a trail of broken relationships, self-esteem issues, ography addiction, and even more. He shares his battles, victories and the lessons that he learned in life to the glory of God.
Starting a family together under these conditions was not and is still not easy. As you can imagine, their journey has been filled with much pain and frustration and yet they made it through together and are advocates against violence and abuse and on the speaker’s bureau for RAINN, the Rape, Abuse, Incest, National Network in Washington, D.C.
