Odenthal Group

(Wichita, KS) The Workforce Alliance Local Workforce Development Board and The Odenthal Group have partnered on a strategic planning process that will lead to the creation of a new two-year strategic plan. This plan will help guide the projects, operations, and initiatives of the board. It will also help better create new programs, enhance services to customers, and improve existing partnerships.


As part of this planning process, The Odenthal Group has helped facilitate a number of virtual and in-person conversations with stakeholders, workforce partners, and board members. We hope to create a plan that is truly reflective of the collective impact that community partners throughout South Central Kansas can have on the future of workforce and economic development.



The following topics and conversations have been held as part of this plan:


Topic One: Planning for the Future During this Economic Crisis

April 27, 28, 29

Topic Two: The Youth Program and Youth Employment Project
