OED believes that the creation of a vibrant, balanced, and diversified economy should benefit individuals across all income levels and strives to facilitate access to economic opportunities for all of Seattle's residents. To achieve this, we partner with both the Seattle Jobs Initiative and the Seattle-King County Workforce Development Council.
