Jan Perry - General Manager, Economic & Workforce Development Department, City of Los AngelesGet Tickets
Meet the general manager for the Los Angeles Economic and Workforce Development Department. With a 175 employee staff, Jan Perry oversees the distribution of millions of dollars in Federal Funds. This money goes towards community programs such as workforce training, youth development, and small business loans. In addition, her department also manages a federal loan portfolio, fueling job creation as well as support for the community.
The Los Angeles Economic and Workforce Development Department (EWDD) was formed in 2013. Jan Perry was appointed as the general manager for the department by none other than Mayor Eric Garcetti himself. Beforehand, she was the Los Angeles City Council member for the 9th District. During her time there, she oversaw an expansion in housing and job development across all income levels. And after joining the EWDD, she redesigned the WorkSource Center system, created a powerful search engine for jobs in LA, and got 10,000 youths into summer jobs.
This Friday, she will be talking about her work in providing jobs to LA. Get your tickets now.
