The new year marks several exciting new beginnings for RealTime Talent. We are pleased to announce that we completed our transition to the Minnesota Chamber Foundation, who will now serve as our organizational host and fiscal sponsor. We are thankful for the generosity and support of The Saint Paul and Minnesota Community Foundations that we have called home for the first two years of RealTime Talent’s existence. The Saint Paul and Minnesota Community Foundations have provided a firm platform for our work to advance workforce alignment across Minnesota. We look forward to continuing this important work with the MN Chamber Foundation, driving a statewide strategy to bring businesses, education providers, workforce planning, and economic development efforts together to better align education and training pathways to meet Minnesota’s workforce needs.
We also welcome our new Executive Director, Deb Broberg, to the RealTime Talent team. Deb comes to RealTime Talent from a successful 25+ year career with Northwest Airlines and Wells Fargo where she held positions with responsibility for Inflight Operations, Talent Acquisition, Learning & Development, and Talent Management. During her tenure with Wells Fargo she gained a keen appreciation for the importance of talent management and workforce planning.
Deb received her MA from the University of Minnesota’s HRIR program and a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Macalester College. She serves on the board of the Human Resources Executive Council and has had a longstanding interest in education and the critical need to plan for future market needs when considering options for post-secondary education and training. Deb is active on the Alumni Board for Macalester College as co-chair of the career development committee, and served on the Carlson School of Management Undergraduate Advisory Board for nine years, where she gained insight on the early Itasca Project research which fueled her interest in workforce readiness for the state of Minnesota.
Deb brings a strong sense of community, commitment, and collaboration to RealTime Talent. Deb is originally from Minnesota and spent her youth in multiple geographies as the daughter of a military family.
