This session will cover how to use transferable skills with non-traditional talent by utilizing non-profits in the community/universities to create talent programs to build a diverse workforce. The war on talent has progressed and become significantly worse in the last three years, and we can expect it will continue to decline over the next decade. We will also discuss how internal people data can help find which roles could be used as a pilot for the talent program along with a discussion on how to get senior leadership to buy-in.
