Keely J. Schneider

Keely J. Schneider is the executive director for Workforce Partnership, the local workforce development board for Johnson, Wyandotte, and Leavenworth counties in Kansas. She directs federal and state funds for workforce development programs for adults and youth, including classroom training, on-the-job training and other work-based learning experiences. In addition, she assists the Workforce Partnership Board in its strategic and fiscal oversight of the comprehensive workforce system under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, which, in addition to the adult and youth programs, includes programs for adult basic education/ESL, employment services under Wagner-Peyser Act, and vocational rehabilitation services. Prior to assuming the role of executive director in October 2016, Ms. Schneider was associate director for the Civic Council of Greater Kansas City, a member organization comprised of CEOs of the largest companies and partnerships in the greater Kansas City region. There she directed all human capital development initiatives, including both higher education and workforce, as well as directed the Civic Council’s “Kansas City Tomorrow” leadership program. Ms. Schneider began her second career in nonprofit over 9 years ago as the development director for a charter school serving at-risk youth in Kansas City, MO. Before making the leap to the nonprofit arena, Ms. Schneider practiced law in the areas of transactional and regulatory healthcare and commercial real estate.
