Developing a more resilient, robust, and equitable talent pipeline in Greater Peoria.

A talent pipeline

Over the last five years our region has made incredible progress in establishing a shared understanding of the systematic changes necessary to build a 21st century talent pipeline. This work is not exclusively focused on a single demographic of our community, rather the GPEDC supports the development of strategies aimed at empowering individuals from cradle to career, from K-12, to recent college graduates, and career-seeking adults. Along with numerous incredible community partners, Greater Peoria is well ahead of the curve on workforce development and there’s no slowing down.
