2021 Greater Racine County Virtual Talent Summit

For nearly 40 years, RCEDC has worked with local businesses and municipalities to grow the tax base of Racine County and facilitate job opportunities for our residents. Racine County’s convenient location, excellent quality of life, and desirable cost of living continues to draw more businesses to the area – so we would like to formally invite you to be part of the talent solution.

The 2021 GRC Virtual Talent Summit will feature an opening leadership presentation plus three optional breakout sessions. You can attend the session of your choice and will have access to the other recorded sessions after the event. The event will kick off with an interactive networking session and close out with a dynamic recap with exciting upcoming opportunities.


Interactive networking session hosted by RCEDC and Newaukee. This is a great opportunity to meet other professionals and leaders who are also seeking to enhance the talent recruitment and retention culture in Racine County.

RCEDC’s Talent Recruitment Specialist, Kate Walker, will provide a thought-provoking presentation about how RCEDC has been utilizing Racine County’s quality of life aspects to recruit talent from Northern Illinois.

An all-star lineup of talent experts will provide 30 minutes worth of specialized content for you to digest and facilitate within your own organization. Upon registration, please identify which breakout room you would initially like to be placed in.
