CSP hosted a well-attended All-Partner Meeting in August - which was held at Front Range Community College. We had a special guest, Lisa Marini, share an engaging presentation on Brain Health. She shared her gratitude with the group.
"Thank you so much for the opportunity to speak at your event. I absolutely love what you are up to as an organization - it’s so needed. It was wonderful to get to know some of you and I look forward to connecting with others I didn’t have an opportunity to chat with.
Please let me know how I can support you individually or your team in the future!
And remember, the next time someone is being an a-hole, it might just be their brain’s fault!"

Colorado Employers Encouraged to Enroll in Good Jobs Pilot
In honor of Workforce Development Month, the CWDC and its partners are launching a campaign to encourage employers to participate in its no-cost Good Jobs Pilot. The pilot is aimed at helping employers assess the quality of the jobs they provide and learn what concrete steps they can take to improve them, resulting in an increased number of candidates and improved retention rates.
