Abstract

The link between economic development and workforce diversity is being explored through an action research project based in an economically transitioning region of central Pennsylvania. This project consists of a collaboration between university researchers, a local college, economic development professionals and the local business community. It is directed at the creation of a sustainable knowledge-intensive, technology-enabled workforce. The intended outcome of this action research effort is ongoing awareness and education programs for the local business community that focuses on helping them to understand: 1) the connection between diversity and economic development in the region; and 2) the barriers to greater workforce diversity that exist in this region.
