Matching Workplace Needs and Education: The Garment Industry Development Corporation
- Suzanne Loker (Cornell University)
The Garment Industry Development Corporation (GIDC) in New York City pro-vides educational programs and other assistance to the apparel industry. GIDC was initiated in 1984 as a joint effort among labor (then ILGWU), management (two industry trade associations) and the city. Although its objectives have evolved over its 15 years, its goal has been to enhance the competitive strategies of the NY apparel industry.
