Gloria Moore, J.D., Executive Director Emeritus of the Community Career Development, Incorporated (CCD) was honored today for her unwavering commitment and dedication to serving the most underprivileged communities of Los Angeles.  California State Senate President Pro Tempore, the Honorable Kevin de Leòn, presented a Resolution stating, “Gloria Moore has compiled an impressive record of career and civic achievements, a record that has earned her the admiration and respect of those persons who have had the privilege of associating with her.”  On behalf of the California Legislature, the Honorable Michael Santiago, Assembly Member of the 53rd District and Majority Whip, bestowed a Certificate of Recognition to Ms. Moore, with appreciation, “Thank you for over a decade of outstanding service as the Executive Director of CCD!  Your many years in working to tirelessly ensure that hundreds of people find jobs in our city and can, therefore, enjoy the quality of life that our city can offer demonstrates determination, integrity and honorable character!”  Ms. Moore was also presented with a Proclamation from the Honorable, Herb Wesson, Councilmember, 10th District and President of the City Council of Los Angeles, in recognition of her outstanding achievements, commitment to excellence and public service to the people of the City of Los Angeles.


With more than 30 years in public service, Ms. Moore retired last month, leaving behind a legacy of nationally recognized programs and services to achieve her vision of “Empowerment through Employment” for the most vulnerable populations of the Los Angeles communities including, veterans, ex-offenders, at-risk and disconnected youth, foster youth, and recipients of public assistance.  Under her leadership, CCD served more than 7,000 jobseekers and 200 businesses annually, leading to the Four Star Performance recognition from the City and County of Los Angeles Workforce Development Boards that CCD received in December, 2015, before her departure. She led the most successful and nationally recognized industry sector strategies and programs including bio-med and trade, transportation and logistics.  She led the organization to two Prospector Awards and the coveted Eureka Award for Excellence from the California Awards for Per­formance Excellence. To achieve her vision, she increased CCD funding from $1M to $10M in grants at its peak as a recipient of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and securing an average of $6M in grants each year from public, non-profit and private sources.  Her leadership in workforce development was recognized last year as the recipient of the Charlie Brown Award by the California Workforce Association (CWA).
