Bham Tech Council
Revealing the magic in the Magic City
July 24th - 3PM
What's Going Down?
This employer/sponsor-only session will include a State of the IT Industry Overview and discussion of employer sponsors' IT talent challenges and solutions. Together we will identify steps for developing the next generation of tech talent in Birmingham. We'll share updates from Innovate Birmingham, hear what the data is telling us about the local IT labor market, and listen to your needs and how we can better partner to make the magic happen here in the Magic City.
What's the Tech Council?
Alignment among workforce training providers and the IT industry is essential for ensuring that Birmingham has the talent it needs to continue to grow and thrive. The BTC (with pledged representation from fifteen employer partners) represents an education-employer alliance and is a forum designed to navigate the program content and strategic direction via dynamic feedback and regular dialogue among stakeholders. The BTC informs how industry needs align with Innovate Birmingham skill development and credential attainment and reviews credentials and skills necessary for high demand jobs to ensure program content is directly aligned with hiring opportunities in the region.
