The talent premium ….

“Fast-growing industries, including those in computers, biomedicine, finance and health care are thriving because they have smart educated people on board. Growth industries want to be where the talent is. So, states have to assess how much talent they’ve got now — and how they can get more, both by attracting smart, educated people and by creating an educational pipleine that will produce more talent in the future.” (The Pew Charitable Trusts)

That’s precisely the strategy surrounding the Chamber’s knowledge economy work. Rhode Island’s excellent array of colleges, universities and hospitals — working in collaboration with business — will drive our economic resurgence. Talent matters, and we’ve got plenty of it!

— Laurie White, president
