Greater Houston Partnership (GHP)


Partnership Initiatives

Houston is at a unique place in our history, with unprecedented growth and opportunity and a limitless future. The Greater Houston Partnership is uniquely positioned to help sustain that growth and move Houston forward.

The Partnership has four initiatives targeting issues key to the future economic growth of the region: enhancing Houston's image, raising awareness about the importance of high quality early education, attracting top talent to our community and developing a strong pipeline of middle skills workforce.

Industry leaders and employers in key sectors consistently warn that a severe and persistent shortage of qualified, skilled workers threatens the success of our region. UpSkill Houston—an unprecedented, industry-led collaboration—addresses this challenge and lays the foundation for the region’s long-term competitiveness. Together, leaders from business, nonprofits, community colleges, K-12 school systems, and government agencies are creating a stronger Houston and more prosperous citizens.

The plan positions Houston as not just a city with an innovative and growing business community, but a dynamic cultural and livable city with a great quality of life.

Houston Talent Attraction Initiative logo

Houston’s incredible economic growth has increased the need for high-skilled, degreed professionals, particularly in energy, life sciences, technology and advanced manufacturing. The Talent Attraction initiative guides the efforts to leverage and implement Houston’s new brand image campaign to help recruit college and professional school graduates from schools across the country.
