TPM OP Resource Guide Cover
As businesses and workers adjust to rapidly changing work environments, employers are focusing on improving diversity to strengthen their workforce. In addition, new economic and workplace challenges may exacerbate barriers to employment — particularly for those who experience barriers to education, employment, and advancement — otherwise known as opportunity populations. Organizations that serve opportunity populations are looking for new ways to connect those who experience barriers to employment to meaningful career pathways and advancement. Strengthening relationships between businesses and opportunity population-serving organizations (OPSOs) is important, but major systemic challenges to sustained partnership often exist.
Strong collaboration between employers and opportunity population-serving organizations can help ensure a more diverse talent pipeline and connect those with limited access to opportunities to meaningful, sustainable careers. The new Talent Pipeline Management Guide provides resources and strategies that can build stronger relationships with employers and opportunity populations.

This paper aims to demystify that landscape and how the major initiatives, including three led by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, fit together.
