    The Mayor’s Workforce Development Council (WDC) and the Mayors Standing Committee on Jobs, Education and the Workforce have played major roles in developing Conference policy as it relates to working families, jobs, education and workforce issues.  The WDC and the Mayors Standing Committee on Jobs, Education and the Workforce continue to combine with the efforts of the Mayors Task Force on Poverty, Work and Opportunity to develop policy priorities promoting the Annie Casey Foundation’s Family Economic Success agenda.
