The American economy faces a serious crisis. While many workers still face unemployment, U.S. businesses are leaving jobs unfilled because they cannot find qualified talent. The mismatch between our current education system and today’s economy has resulted in an ever increasing skills gap that threatens the security and growth of the U.S. economy. In response, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation (USCCF) launched the Talent Pipeline Management initiative, a supply chain approach that calls on the business community and public policy leaders to transform education and workforce systems to be employer-led and demand-driven.
Over the past year we have been implementing talent supply chain strategies and practices with members of a National Learning Network. To highlight their important work and promote their leadership USCCF hosted a national conference on March 23, 2016 in Washington, DC.
