As with every Bingham Fellows program year, the class is made up of a talented group of local leaders with a broad knowledge base and range of experience on the topic.

More about the 2017 Topic: Winning the Talent of the Future
Louisville, and the rest of the U.S., has seen a major shift in its workforce over the last 30 years. Manufacturing jobs have declined while service and technical jobs have increased, and the skills needed to fill these jobs have changed as well. With a strong tradition of manufacturing, Louisville was significantly affected by this shift, and we have fallen behind our peer cities in attracting new talent, particularly millennials, and training our existing residents with the skills needed to fill the jobs of today. In order for Louisville to stay competitive and have a thriving economy, we must aggressively develop talent locally, as well as recruit and attract skilled professionals. The Bingham Fellows Class of 2017 will work to advance Louisville’s ability to develop, retain and attract the talent we need to compete and thrive.
