PRESIDENT AND CEO, U.S. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
Developing the talent your industry needs.
Since 2015, through the U.S. Chamber Foundation’s Talent Pipeline Management initiative, we have helped more than 2,000 employers partner with educators and economic development leaders to help make sure tomorrow’s workers are developing just the right skills to meet employer needs — and in the process, we're making sure those employers have the talent they need to compete, grow, and thrive.
New ways to finance education and training.
Hello, new workers.
We're reimagining how America finances and invests in the development and upskilling of a competitive workforce. In partnership with leading thinkers and doers from the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, Greater Houston Partnership, SHRM, Education Finance Council, Social Finance, and National Association of Workforce Boards, the U.S. Chamber Foundation launched, Talent Finance.
It's a new approach to paying for education and skills training to create more opportunity, more inclusion, more jobs, for more people.
The right message.
Adding workers by removing barriers.
The talent is out there.
Second-chance job seekers.
More employers are providing inmates and ex-offenders the training and support they need to re-enter the workforce. Building these pathways for the formerly incarcerated can help not only those individuals, but also your company in addressing its workforce needs.
Every day, from the halls of Congress to state capitals across the nation, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is fighting for government policies that will help more workers find jobs and help more employers find talent.
Through the America Works Agenda, we’re turbocharging these efforts — and we invite you to join us. Call on your elected leaders to take action to help America’s workers and employers by closing the skills gap, growing our country’s workforce, and keeping our economy strong.
Invest in innovative, employer-led workforce training programs to better prepare workers for the jobs of today and tomorrow
