In 2016 in partnership with SkillWorks, the Boston PIC launched a regional strategy to focus on developing the IT/tech workforce. Last year Boston was invited to be part of the national TechHire network of 70+ communities working to connect 100K people to IT jobs by 2020.
To read the report that describes the workforce challenge in Greater Boston, please visit the SkillWorks report.
We are hosting public forums to frame the issues, learn best practices, and hear from employers directly. Our work is guided by an employer advisory board comprised of members from SIM Boston and other engaged Chief Information Officers and senior IT leaders representing a range of sectors – healthcare, real estate, government, finance, and innovation.
If you are interested in learning more about the PIC’s IT/tech strategy, please contact Bruce Stephen, Employer Engagement Manager, Information Technology, at [email protected] or 617-488-1342.
