In alignment with its strategic objectives, the Albany Area Chamber Foundation in 2023 convened business and community leaders to update the Albany-Dougherty County Works! Talent Strategy presented in 2020 in partnership with the Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission. The updated strategy represents a community-wide, two-year roadmap and action plan to strengthen Albany’s talent and its talent pipeline. The strategy was developed by a collaborative of employers, community partners and educational partners and was facilitated by the University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government.
