According to the Public Policy Institute of California, by 2030 the California economy will face a shortage of 1.1 million college-educated workers. What is your organization doing right now to prepare for this incredible workforce challenge?
A McKinsey & Company study, “Delivering Through Diversity,” found that businesses that excel in employing diverse workforces exceed the average annual financial returns within their respective industries by 35%.
10,000 Degrees, a San Francisco Bay Area nonprofit, helps students from low-income backgrounds get to and through college. In fact, over 80% of our students earn four-year college degrees, nearly three times the average rate of their peers. 100% of 10,000 Degrees students come from low-income backgrounds and have proven themselves to be resilient and highly-motivated – the kind of team members any organization would be lucky to have.
Investing in 10,000 Degrees is much more than a corporate tax deduction – it’s a strategic investment in the future of your company and your community.
