Through Tech Apprentice, the Boston Private Industry Council has focused on IT/tech internships as a subset of its overall Youth Summer Employment Program in partnership with the Mayor and the Boston Public Schools for over 10 years. In 2017 the PIC sought to understand how these very early pipeline efforts where impacting the future labor force and how programming and systemic work might evolve to meet the demand for greater scale, preparation and diversity in the tech workforce. This panel presentation and discussion will focus on:
  • Approaches for employer engagement and relationship cultivation;
  • More about the Tech Apprentice Signal Success curriculum and its potential for talent outreach, identification, and preparation;
  • What employers can do to be receptive environments for aspiring technologists;
  • Increasing student diversity through alignment with career and technical education pathways.
