In order to keep up with today’s global digital transformation, it is imperative to create a flourishing AI ecosystem that will fuel the growth of innovation jobs and economic prosperity across our region. Strong, equitable regions must be ready for the future with a skilled workforce. Orange County can and should be a leader in this talent pipeline by establishing an AI Talent Lab, led by CLAOC and its partners to work across silos in the region. Local CEOs have the power and resources to bring the right people together to work on the big issues that require cross-sector collaboration. We are positioned to build upon our strengths: our diversity and our economic vitality to catapult OC as a leader in AI talent development.
As purposeful leaders in Orange County, we contribute to the region’s growth by being a leader in talent development, building a deep and diverse talent pool to attract AI-infused innovation industries. Led by local businesses, the AI Talent Lab is the premier source of talent cultivation, providing OC residents the opportunity to build and flourish in AI-infused careers. Through the support of AI talent and business development, OC will become a global AI hub where people come to get an AI related education, find jobs or start a business, and find capital to grow their business.
With a clear focus on racial and gender diversity, we bring together civic and business leaders, AI-focused entrepreneurs, and education organizations to cultivate and recruit the diverse talent needed now and in the future to support a robust AI-infused economy in OC.
