-- Hiring need is out-pacing University output
-- Socio-economic disparity is growing, driving more people to less industry desired degrees and secondary or tertiary education sources.
-- Industry operating culture is under attack as diversity continue to decline, and we fail to represent the diverse marketplace that we serve.
This is why Apprenti (a program from Seattle-based nonprofit Washington Technology Industry Association) partnered with Industry and the U.S. Department of Labor to create a registered tech apprenticeship program. The program attracts diverse tech talent, provides training and a pathway to become successful in tech roles without regard for experience or education, as well as paid on-the-job training experience with top companies across the U.S.
Come hear how companies like Amazon, Microsoft, Accenture and Avvo have adopted the tech apprenticeship model, are closing their diversity and talent gaps, and are hiring top talent from underrepresented groups.
