AHC President, Richard ("Rick") Maher

Adaptive Human Capital’s President & CEO, Richard (“Rick”) Maher, will be leading a national webcast hosted by the United States Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration (USDOL-ETA) and the National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA). The webcast is scheduled for Monday, June 26, and is entitled “Meeting Today's Talent Challenge: Accelerating Workforce Digital Transformation.”

The event will address the need for digital transformation in state service delivery and introduce a Masterclass workshop series to support states. The Masterclass Series is being planned for August 2023 and will engage states that are ready to advance their digital transformation efforts in an action-oriented, team-based learning event. Maher will be part of the Masterclass faculty as well, focusing on the role of managing workforce resistance to change.

USDOL-ETA oversees the Nation’s Workforce Development programs and distributes federal funding to states which administrate workforce programs, including unemployment insurance assistance around the country. NASWA’s Workforce IT Support Center (Workforce ITSC), working in partnership with ETA, is leading the effort to help streamline service delivery processes and improve customer outcomes in the workforce development system through better use of modern technology.

“This is critically related to our mission at AHC,” says Maher. “Adaptive Human Capital is all about building more resilient individuals, organizations, and communities, and that is exactly what NASWA’s Workforce ITSC is focused on here. Member states are increasingly interested in finding ways to innovate and improve service delivery using technology and this webcast is a national call to action for that effort in workforce development. We’re thrilled to be their partner in this critical work!”

Maher will be joined by Scott Sanders, President and CEO of NASWA and Kim Vitelli, Administrator of ETA’s Office of Workforce Investment in the June 26th event.
