Thirty on Thursday: Reimagining How to Find Diverse, Untapped Tech Talent

2020 has introduced significant disruptions in how we do business, but there are also some lessons we have learned. If companies were not already considering new ways to find tech talent, 2020 has propelled employers across industries to embrace new strategies from building talent pipelines for emerging technical needs to retraining and upskilling existing workers to attracting and supporting greater diversity and inclusion that is often underrepresented in tech companies and IT departments, regardless of industry. Join Lauren Jones, Massachusetts Director of Apprenti, for a brief presentation in how companies like Cengage, Eversource, Liberty Mutual, VMware, and Wayfair are applying the registered apprenticeship model to bridge the tech talent and diversity gaps for IT roles like Software Developers, IT Business Analysts, Cybersecurity Analysts and more across a range of industries home to Massachusetts.
