The PIC is Boston’s Workforce Development Board, a federally authorized body that oversees Boston’s one-stop career centers and the federal investment in job training, in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Workforce Development. The PIC is one of sixteen workforce boards statewide.

Mayor Walsh appoints the members of the Boston Private Industry Council, which serves as Boston's Workforce Development Board. The Board is comprised of leaders from business, education, government, labor, and the community. It oversees the distribution of public workforce development funds in collaboration with the Mayor’s Office of Workforce Development. Spending recommendations for adult and youth service dollars are reviewed in detail by its subcommittees, which include the Workforce Development Committee and the Youth Council. The Board charters Boston’s one-stop career centers and works through them to implement workforce development strategies.
