Maria S Salinas on matching workers to jobs

President & CEO of the LA Area Chamber of Commerce Maria S Salinas discusses matching workers' talents to jobs at the Milken Global Conference 2019.

Maria S Salinas, president & CEO of the LA Area Chamber of Commerce, understands the value of the American worker and the need to foster local talent.

“Human capital is the most essential piece to making sure that our economy is working right,” she tells us at the Milken Global Conference 2019.

Maria’s job is to make sure that as those jobs become available that the local talent is prepared to take on those roles. One way the Chamber accomplishes that is by cultivating partnerships with organizations to expose young talent to various industries.
