Mahalia Baldini has spent the last fifteen years integrating workforce and economic development with educational solutions that focus on low and middle skill workers. She believes and values a system that supports more education and learning opportunities aligned to the growing demands of local employers that need skilled workers that also possess social and emotional intelligence to excel in and contribute to a positive work culture.
Mrs. Baldini has been a program supervisor for Texas' state administered Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) program housed at the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) that assist over 100,000 students statewide in services that range from high school equivalency and language acquisition to career pathway models that align to employer needs and support specific targeted occupations and/or industry clusters. Her B.A in Journalism has prepared her with skills to communicate strategic initiatives to local community providers and her Master's in Education assist her in analyzing gaps between secondary and post secondary education where many disconnected youth and adults find themselves searching for more opportunity.
