ICSC Foundation Talent Incubator Project

Our industry is changing at rapid speed and we must create a more agile and engaged workforce. To attract and grow new talent that will help our members effectively compete with other business sectors, we have developed a network of support for incoming talent: the ICSC Talent Incubator Project.

Grounded in innovation and best practices, our Talent Incubator Project is a series of leading-edge initiatives offering undergraduate and graduate students multiple entry points to the retail real estate and retail industries, while providing ICSC members access to new, capable talent. 

Talent development initiatives are targeted efforts to recruit talent that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve.
