Elliot Ginsberg cited for depth of service, 22 years on CWP Board of Directors
EAST HARTFORD, Conn.— Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology President and CEO Elliot Ginsberg received the Capital Workforce Partners President’s Award at CWP’s annual meeting on June 15.
Presented by CWP Board Chairman Thomas Mongellow and U.S. Rep. John Larson of East Hartford, the award recognizes meritorious service, which Congressman Larson spelled out during his remarks. Ginsberg is retiring from the CWP board after 22 years.
“Your work is exemplary,” Larson said about Ginsberg, who is his former chief of staff and Connecticut’s commissioner of human services under then-Gov. William A. O’Neill. “You care deeply for your community, state and nation.” Turning to those in attendance, Larson added, “This is someone who is dedicated with every fiber of his being to improving the lives of families.”
Mongellow emphasized that Ginsberg goes to great lengths to ensure employer perspectives are not only heard but acted upon for workforce development policy and initiatives. Ginsberg expanded upon the speakers’ thoughts in brief remarks.
“I’ve tried to make changes that are necessary,” he said. “I’ve seen what happens when families don’t have enough income and a job – and it’s never good. It’s the responsibility of organizations such as ours to not just do what the law says but to listen to our hearts.”
