The Education & Workforce Development Committee is deeply engaged in helping students enter the workforce better prepared and tracking trends and data so we can help our companies remain competitive and attract the best talent. That’s how we stay on top of our game!

  • Career Edge – this successful program is preparing to scale its programming and outreach to all colleges and universities in Orange County. We need your help reviewing the format, concepts and delivery systems. Invest in these next generation employees!
  • Career Readiness Programs – whether it’s the wildly popular Financial Forum or the new, re-tooled Ethics Forum, we are influencing the readiness of our students with programs that encourage critical thinking, problem solving and team work. Contribute your expertise and experience to this worthwhile venture!
  • Education & Business Summit – with the support of the CEO of Edwards LifeSciences and the Chancellor of UCI, we are now ready to design the prestigious CEO Roundtable and next Education & Business Summit. We need your insight to take this essential connection to the next level!
