Education & Talent Action Team

The Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia believes that access to education across the continuum will assure that the region benefits from an educated and skilled workforce to fuel our growth. Through partnerships with educators, employers and non-profit organizations, the Chamber engages in programming and initiatives that are designed to prepare talent to compete in the global economy.

Convened through the Chamber, these leaders are the Greater Philadelphia Education & Talent Action Team (ETAT), a unique, cross-functional group focused on creating clear pathways for the alignment between early-career individuals and employers to assure that we are training and engaging the region’s future leaders. ETAT will work to position Greater Philadelphia as a premier talent hub through cultivating innovative cross-sector collaborations.


  • Increase connections to the labor market and support for regional networks of learning and doing;
  • Advocate for innovative policies to increase accessibility to post-high school training and create a competitive advantage for Greater Philadelphia in the race for talent;
  • Support employer needs to enhance connectivity to and engage early- and mid-career employees; and
  • Tell the story of what makes Greater Philadelphia an attractive place to learn, work and engage.

Survey Findings
