Launch of Greater Boston IT/Tech Consortium
In September 2016, the PIC, in partnership with SkillWorks, launched the Greater Boston IT/Tech Consortium with a forum focused on workforce challenges, including lack of diversity in the sector across all occupations and lack of exposure between employers and two-year colleges as a talent pipeline. At the forum, SkillWorks released a new Information Communication Technology (ICT) industry report. This forum was the first in a series of three that marked the beginning of a greater dialogue on how to narrow skill gaps, increase diversity, and provide greater opportunities in ICT for all Massachusetts residents.
