NEC to Publish 4th Edition “Partnerships for the Talent Pipeline” Directory

Submissions Due July 31, 2020

The New England Council is seeking submissions for the 4th edition of our “Partnerships for the Talent Pipeline: Directory of New England Higher Education & Industry Partnerships.” The directory highlights examples of successful models used in New England to connect students and employers in order to strengthen our regional workforce and ensure career success. View the third edition here.

The directory was first published in 2016, with updated editions released in 2018 and 2019. The Council is now seeking submissions from our members – both educational institutions and employers – to include in the fourth edition of the directory, which will be released this fall.

Council members are invited to share information on various partnership programs, including experiential learning opportunities (i.e. internships, apprenticeships), mentoring programs, and curriculum development and coordination initiatives. Of particular interest are programs focused on:

  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Energy and CleanTech
  • FinTech (Financial Technology)
  • Medical/Health Sciences
  • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)
  • Software Development


As with the third edition, we will highlight not just higher education partnerships, but also partnerships that involve K-12 educational institutions, recognizing that many employers are beginning to engage with students at an earlier stage in their education.

Once the updated directory is completed, it will be shared with our entire membership, as well as the New England Congressional delegation and other policymakers and stakeholders. We hope that the directory will continue to be a useful resource and will encourage employers and educational institutions to continue to pursue and expand partnership initiatives that develop our region’s talent pipeline.

Please note that submissions are due by July 31, 2020, and we welcome multiple submissions from one organization. Please contact Taylor Pichette at or 413-626-0709 if you have any questions.
