About Workforce Development Institute (WDI)

The Workforce Development Institute (WDI) is a statewide nonprofit that works to grow and keep good jobs in NYS. We use a range of tools — including ground level information, workforce expertise, and funding — to facilitate projects that build skills and strengthen employers’ ability to hire and promote workers. Their work often fills gaps not covered by other organizations and is accomplished through partnerships and collaborations with businesses, unions, other non-profits, educational institutions, and government.
