Our Mission

nbspOC California Community College

The Orange County California Community Colleges Business and Entrepreneurship Sector is dedicated to those interested in upskilling, reskilling, or refreshing their employability.

This community-based learning program is designed to address what has happened in 2020 and its long-term effects due to the devastating, widespread pandemic and–in moving forward–in elevating our awareness of and actions on equity, diversity, and inclusion, particularly in the context of the Call to Action by Chancellor Eloy Oakley, California Community College Office of the Chancellor (CCCCO). Besides, it’s just the right thing to do.

Preparing our community college students for the future of work is foundational for their success, for the business community at large, and to respond to an employment ecosystem that will not return to the old normal. Being creative, innovative, and emphasizing and providing the reality to gain these skills, is at the core of what we refer to as the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Quotient (EDIQ) process and student skills enhancement. The defining connection is between Employability and Entrepreneurship.
