Event Overview

Talent, Cities, & Competitiveness

Cities and regions, not just employers, are focused on talent. To remain vibrant and to drive economic prosperity, cities and regions are increasing their concentration of talent through social and economic policies and practices. We will explore these trends with a focus on successful Opportunity Youth inclusion practices. We will dive into how local employers and educators can together increase the competitiveness of their companies, institutions, and cities through development and engagement of Opportunity Youth.
