A Conversation with Employers and Career Readiness Leaders

This panel explores how employers and community colleges can partner effectively to provide greater access to job opportunities for all students.

Community and technical colleges are a crucial workforce talent supply pipeline in America’s economy—and are bound to become even more important as employment patterns shift post COVID-19. This panel explores how employers and community colleges can partner effectively to provide greater access to job opportunities for all students. We discuss how employers are strategically growing their community college recruiting efforts—What considerations are driving and influencing their decisions on large-scale campus hiring? What role does diversity, equity, and inclusion play in their approach? And what can community colleges do to elevate their students in today’s competitive recruiting landscape? 

This webinar was held in partnership with the California Community College Association for Occupational Education.
