"Talent is fuel for economic growth and expansion.  Fayetteville State University is an important part of the talent readiness ecosystem that supplies talent for the Charlotte region and the state of North Carolina."

Strengthening connection and relationship between the Charlotte region's employers and institutions supplying our talent pipeline is a key priority for the Charlotte Chamber. We deeply appreciate Dr. Tamara Holmes Brother's consistent presence and partnership with the Charlotte Chamber as we work together to ensure an inclusive, workforce ready talent pool."

This partnership is a win-win for Fayetteville State University, the Charlotte Business Community, and the City of Charlotte," said Dr. Brothers, Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations for FSU. "I am excited that the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce is willing to work with us as we seek to provide professional development opportunities for corporate employees through our College of Business & Economics and Center for Defense & Homeland Security as it relates to continued education offerings.  Building such a relationship as a form of company reinvestment in their employees will garner internship and career opportunities for our students and alumni.  In return, these Charlotte businesses will be getting prepared and highly qualified candidates who are ready for the workforce."
