Solutions-Focused Programs

Challenge

Various workforce diversity gaps exist in different business sectors, while training gaps exist for diverse students.

Actions

TMCF partners with corporations to build diverse talent pipelines that fill recruitment needs and address diversity gaps – while building a solid training mechanism at its member-schools that prepare students for success in the workforce.

TMCF utilizes predictive analytics to identify talent that has both the knowledge and soft skills to be successful in a given partner’s corporate culture, develops those students through a variety of activities and supports, and deploys them with corporate partners as either full-time employees or interns. 

TMCF offers a range of activities – from a targeted recruitment function for specific positions, to an annual Leadership Institute that presents the top 400 students from across the Black college system, to engagement throughout the year in the form of scholarships and student ambassadors for specific partners.

Outcomes

TMCF currently partners with over 80 national and global corporations – as well as government agencies – to identify, develop and deploy diverse talent for specific positions and functions.  As a result of TMCF’s solutions-focused programs, Apple chose TMCF to be its primary partner to help address the diversity gap in the technology industry.

TMCF partners are highly satisfied with TMCF’s actions, and 3 of 4 partners report that they will continue to engage TMCF and our various activities to identify, develop and recruit diverse talent for their companies.  TMCF partners include the following CEO Action members:  Ally Financial; Boston Consulting Group; DuPont; Eli Lilly & Company; Exelon; EY; The Hershey Company; Hilton Worldwide; The Kellogg Company; KPMG; TIAA; United Airlines; Walmart and Wyndham Worldwide.

TMCF offers solutions to our corporate partners to create sustainable diverse talent pipelines.  We are delighted to be part of the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion initiative, as we offer both expertise and a deep pool of talent to help coalition members succeed in their targeted recruitment and development of diverse talent
