As HR Leaders strategize about ways to attract talent for their organizations, initiatives focused on higher ed can be the path to a robust pipeline. 

This session will share keys for the successful utilization of corporate engagements with higher education institutions.  In today's fight for high quality talent, business leaders are often unaware of how the implementation of academic partnerships can be a long-game strategy worth investing in. Along with developing a pipeline of future potential employees, academic partnerships are an effective model for supporting tomorrow's workforce career readiness, for activating DEI goals aimed at providing access opportunities, and for building community via goodwill.

Learning Objectives:

  • Research based insight about Gen Z employees and what they are looking for in the workplace.
  • Understanding the impact of corporate partnership with academic institutions as a pipeline for engaging Gen Z future employees.
  • How to build a success academic partnership.
