State Workforce Investment Board

About SWIB

Mississippi's State Workforce Investment Board is created pursuant to MS Code Section 37-153-7 and the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act to serve as an advisory board to the Office of Workforce Development (i.e. AccelerateMS), to monitor publicly-funded workforce development programs, and to recommend strategies and policies that enhance coordination among programs and activities towards continuous improvement of Mississippi's complex workforce development system.
