Workforce Development

CCE commits to helping expand the talent pipeline within the creative sector through advanced professional development, job and entrepreneurship training, relationship building, and access to capital for individuals, creative businesses, institutions, and community organizations.  CCE maintains a focus on equity, ensuring its programs engage communities of color, LGBTQ, veterans, and other historically marginalized communities for creative workforce. To accomplish this, we partner with established community based organizations and workforce development agencies that intentionally serve, prepare, place, and support job-seekers from disinvested communities.
