OneTen is seeking to build a broad coalition of partners to advance our mission of hiring Black talent without four-year degrees into family-sustaining jobs. Specifically, we are also inviting collaboration from experienced partners (organization or individuals) to develop our OneTen network through local Community Development Lead and Community Partner roles in Atlanta.
OneTen Background and Context
OneTen is a coalition of leading chief executives and their companies who are coming together to upskill, hire and promote one million Black individuals who do not yet have a four-year degree into family-sustaining jobs with opportunities for advancement over the next 10 years. OneTen connects employers with talent partners including leading nonprofits and other skill-credentialing organizations who support the development of diverse talent. By creating more equitable and inclusive workforces, we believe we can reach our full potential as a nation. Our goal, ultimately, is to close the racial wealth gap in the United States.
In addition to working with coalition member companies (i.e. employers) to open up new pathways for employment, OneTen is building a network of endorsed talent development partners to enable Black talent to gain new skills and job-ready expertise. From hands-on vocational and apprenticeship programs to online boot camps and MOOCs, these partners are leading local, regional, and national education and skill-building organizations and play a critical role in helping us meet our collective goals.
OneTen will also establish a presence in key regions across the U.S. Our efforts will be shaped by the local workforce development landscape and will include reducing exclusionary hiring practices, identifying robust talent sources, and strengthening equitable career pathways for advancement. Atlanta already has strong organizations and initiatives working to support Black talent and to connect them to economic opportunity; OneTen will seek to align with and amplify these existing local efforts.
- Community Development Lead Role
OneTen is seeking an organization or individual(s) that will work as our on-the-ground partner in strengthening the local ecosystem of Black talent and the many stakeholders we seek to engage as allies in achieving our shared collective goals.
- Community Partner Role
OneTen is also building a broad network of community partners in Atlanta to work together with Community Development Leads and key OneTen stakeholders as we advance our mission and the work of our coalition members at the local level.
