SHOREVIEW, MN (March 20, 2023) — Ecumen’s Director of Operations, Katie Lundmark, has been reappointed to the Governor’s Workforce Development Board (GWDB) for a three-year term, where she will continue to advocate for increasing the pipeline and eliminating barriers for people to enter Minnesota’s long-term care workforce. Lundmark, who lives in Detroit Lakes, began serving on the GWDB in 2019.

The GWDB is Minnesota’s federally required state workforce development board under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). The Board advises the Governor on Minnesota’s workforce system to help job seekers access employment, education, training, and support services and to meet the needs of local employers.

“Katie is a true advocate for our team members and those we serve across the state,” said Shelley Kendrick, Ecumen president and CEO. “She is an important voice at the table and we’re proud to have her represent Ecumen and Minnesota’s older adults on this Board.”
