Talent Greater Philly was formed in 2010 in an effort to amplify the efforts of the region’s many educational support partners. As a collective, Talent Greater Philly collaborates to elevate the importance of college completion and workforce preparedness as key issues impacting Greater Philadelphia’s economy.
Talent Greater Philly will work to position the Greater Philadelphia region as one of the top ten major metropolitan regions in terms of post-secondary educational attainment.
Educational attainment is the greatest predictor of success for cities and metro areas today. In fact, in Greater Philadelphia, increasing educational attainment by one percentage point would yield a $4.4 billion annual increase in personal income for regional residents.
Greater Philadelphia’s business, higher education, and non-profit communities are committed to supporting and growing local talent and retaining the talent that’s educated in our region’s colleges and universities.
