Colorado Department of Labor and Employment Executive Director Receives NASWA President’s Award, Joins NASWA Team
WASHINGTON – Recently, at the 81st Annual Workforce Summit in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, Dale Peinecke, the 2016-2017 Board President for the National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA), presented Ellen Golombek, Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Employment and Labor, with the prestigious President’s Award. Ms. Golombek was bestowed with this top honor in recognition of her years of exceptional and innovative leadership of Colorado’s workforce development system.
“Ellen has been an amazing asset to NASWA, to the national workforce system and to her home state of Colorado,” Peinecke said. “And it’s not just Colorado that’s benefitted from her visionary leadership. Ellen has been an active contributor to the success of NASWA and has been instrumental in a number of the technological advances we’ve seen at NASWA over the last several years.”
Ms. Golombek has also served as a previous Board President of NASWA, and will be transitioning from the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment to Director of NASWA Services with NASWA next month.
“Ellen is a shining example to her peers across the nation of what can be achieved through dynamic, innovative leadership,” said Scott B. Sanders, NASWA Executive Director. “As such, I am also honored to welcome Ellen to the NASWA team. NASWA staff have a long-standing tradition of being the best and brightest from across the nation, and Ms. Golombek definitely fills that criteria.”
