Nonprofit Relies on Employers for Success in Diversifying Workforce

Taylor Dunne
Taylor Dunne, senior manager of Talent Initiatives for the nonprofit San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation (EDC), describes for the CalChamber Board of Directors on March 10 the EDC’s effort to diversify and strengthen the region’s workforce. Dunne says the success of the latest effort to connect people with quality jobs comes from putting employers at the center of the talent pipeline management network and helping those employers look at potential employees in terms of the skills needed to do the job, rather than just listing an academic degree as the minimum qualification for applicants.
