Workforce Talent Development

MONTEREY BAY REGION: A strong workforce is a vital part of a  sustainable and prosperous economy. High unemployment levels, a lack of trained, ready-to-work population, and a growing skills gap are just a few of the challenges that hinder economic development.

MBEP’s Workforce Development Initiative seeks to create positive change through collaborative approaches that bring new resources to the region, amplify the impact of best practices, encourage the growth of start-ups and other companies, and help ease the transition of students to the workforce. You can learn more about all of our workforce development projects that are helping our region’s economy and community recover in our Workforce Development Initiative Snapshot.
