Vision, Mission & Values

Our Vision

Grads of Life envisions a future in which the talent marketplace functions effectively for all Americans, especially Opportunity Talent, who have been kept out of the economic mainstream for far too long. For this to happen, all employers must see Opportunity Talent as a key component of their talent strategies and build systems and structures that support the hiring, training and development of this population at their companies.

Our Mission

Grads of Life’s mission is to close the Opportunity Gap that separates diverse talent pools and the companies that will benefit from hiring them. We help employers to design and implement inclusive talent strategies which make a measurable, sustainable social and financial impact and promote economic opportunity, stability and mobility for all.
