BOLSTER OUR TALENT PIPELINE
A strong talent pipeline is increasingly important to the economic growth and prosperity of a region. Targeted initiatives across the entire pipeline are necessary for the region to prosper. Bolstering the talent pipeline is deeply intertwined with the Baton Rouge Area’s ability to diversify its economy, create more inclusive economic opportunities, and improve the region’s livability.

YOUNG PROFESSIONAL FOCUS
High-tech regions are magnets for young professionals and typically boast young professional populations of 31% and higher. The Baton Rouge Area produces thousands of college graduates annually yet has seen a net out-migration of young professionals for five of the past six years. Increasing the percentage of the region’s population of 25 to 44 year olds from 27% to 32% would put the Baton Rouge Area in the ranks of high-performing regions such as Salt Lake City, Seattle, and Denver.

Under each of BRAC’s four focus areas, high-level strategic priorities were identified to achieve the large goals, then metrics of success were recommended for each priority to help track progress.
