CSCF President/CEO Pamela Nabors Earns National Leadership Award
Orlando, FL – Workforce development professionals from across the country gathered in New Orleans this week for the annual National Association of Workforce Development Professionals (NAWDP), where it was announced that CareerSource Central Florida (CSCF) President/CEO Pamela Nabors was named the Peter E. Kaiser Leadership Award recipient for 2017.
The NAWDP Advancing the Profession Awards recognize six individuals each year who excel in performance in areas including customer service, system building, leadership, research, and professional development.
Pam received the 2017 Peter E. Kaiser Leadership Award based on several years of progressive leadership that started in 2012, when she brought her own brand of innovation and collaboration to lead the Central Florida Regional Workforce Board into a more active, community-engaged direction.
Working with businesses, educators, community & civic leaders, and other Regional Workforce Boards, Pam created and expanded partnerships while leading CSCF through a state-wide rebranding effort, and later implementing the first new legislative changes for workforce development in 20 years, in the form of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), which represents a major shift in operations and service delivery. These are just some of the many professional highlights through which Pam has led CSCF.
“This award is particularly meaningful for me; the NAWDP has supported and encouraged my personal leadership and workforce development throughout my career,” said Pam. “To be recognized by my peers for this honor is extremely rewarding.”
The National Association of Workforce Development Professionals advocates for the workforce industry and develops the professional capacity of workforce professionals seeking the highest standards of excellence in credentialing, applied learning opportunities, and cutting edge tools to excel in serving job seekers and business.
Members are drawn from Workforce Investment Boards and America’s Job Centers, Community and Career Colleges, military bases, youth employment programs, corporations, and Faith and Community-Based organizations from across the nation.
