As part of EDC’s Inclusive Growth initiative and guided by the new interactive web study, a group of top local employers has officially endorsed a regional goal to double San Diego’s annual production of skilled workers to 20,000 by 2030.
In support of this goal, the Inclusive Growth Steering Committee also developed the following set of recommendations for employers to adopt and implement in their organizations:
1.Transparency – provide EDC with anonymized data on workforce demographics to benchmark and track over time.
2.Engagement – participate in direct student-workplace exposure programs.
3.Investment – invest in post-secondary educational programs resulting in qualified talent.
To learn about the importance of developing a stronger local talent pipeline and how you can leverage these recommendations in your organization, visit EDC’s new interactive web study. Together, we can build a better, more inclusive San Diego where everyone can thrive.
