Strategic Priorities

Paths to Economic Mobility and Opportunity

Access to Opportunity: Upskilling During COVID-19 and Beyond

We’re seeking to connect unemployed and underemployed individuals to technical training through community colleges and other higher education partners, workforce development boards and training organizations to foster greater economic mobility during and after the pandemic. Learn More

CLT Careers Campaign

In partnership with the NC Apprenticeship Council Committee and others, we seek to raise awareness around in-demand, high growth careers such as manufacturing and technology, as well as connect underserved populations to apprenticeships and work-based learning, as a path to employment and economic opportunity.

Talent-Focused Economic Research

Community College Data Project

In partnership with the Charlotte Regional Collaborative for a Global Workforce (a consortium of regional community colleges) and the Federal Reserve Bank we are working on deepening our understanding of talent supply from our regional community colleges to increase our economic competitiveness for attracting and growing new jobs.

CLT Tech Talent Study

In collaboration with the City of Charlotte, we are seeking to analyze our technology talent and businesses to determine how we can better meet employer needs, and create a more inclusive tech talent pipeline with greater access to education, training and employment opportunities.

Advancing Diverse, Growth-Oriented Businesses

Scale Up CLT

Is a partnership between the CLT Alliance Foundation, the City of Charlotte and EO (Entrepreneurs Organization) that is accelerating the growth of diverse, minority-owned businesses in the Charlotte region.
