Employers within Cincinnati and across our state need access to talent – specifically, digitally skilled talent to maintain and grow their enterprises. Meanwhile, there are unemployed and underemployed individuals
seeking a way to attain a marketable skill set to improve their earning potential and quality of life.

There is an opportunity to bridge the gap between these needs, and it exists with the Cincinnati Talent Acceleration Program.


A path for digitally skilled talent to thrive.

This unique opportunity leverages the strengths of UC and several organizations to increase the digitally-skilled talent pool with individuals at all levels to empower them with the in-demand skills needed by today’s employers.
