    WorkforceThe Economic Development department, along with several community partners including DMACCAnkeny Chamber of CommerceAnkeny Community School District, and the Ankeny Economic Development Corporation, work to serve as an employment and training connection for employers, job seekers, and youth throughout Ankeny.
