new approach to recruitment and selection
To build on the expertise of the Coro alumni community, we are creating alumni advisory panels to guide our recruitment efforts and develop engaging new ways to involve the community in our program selection efforts. Please contact Aditi Chakravarty, Recruitment & Outreach Manager, to learn more about recruitment advisory panels.
Recognizing that Coro alumni have the best sense of what it takes to be a successful Coro participant, we invite you to join us at an upcoming screening or selection activity for the Coro Fellows program. These events will be an opportunity to network with the community and to practice skills learned at Coro.

the future of new york city's workforce: a coro conversation
Coro is partnering with the Center for an Urban Future and Year Up to host a conversation about the city's workforce challenges based on the Center's recent policy report, Closing the Skills Gap, which finds that the city faces a human capital crisis that could threaten our long-term economic competitiveness while relegating countless residents to low-wage jobs.
Featuring Gonzalo Mercado (ICLP 2008), Executive Director of El Centro de Hospitalidad, and Angie Kamath (ICLP 2007), Deputy Commissioner of Workforce Development at NYC Department of Small Business Services, we are convening Coro alumni from different sectors and perspectives to join us for a thoughtful conversation about the City's workforce challenges and our choices for the future.
Date: Wednesday, March 3, 2010
Time: 6:30 to 8:00pm
Location: Edwin Gould Foundation; 55 Exchange Place
Space is limited and advance RSVP is required. Click here to RSVP.
