DC Chamber of Commerce Presents: A Forum on Tech Jobs and the Future of Work in DC

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Technology is a major driver of employment and innovation in DC. Yet, there is a great abundance of vacant information technology (IT) positions which go unfilled. Companies want to hire top-notch, highly skilled IT professionals, however, keeping up with shifting trends and evolving technologies has proven significantly more challenging than anyone could have predicted. With the IT skills gap expected to grow over the coming years, employers must turn to creative solutions for both attracting talent and upskilling current employees. 

Benefits of Attending:
  • Learn more about the Fourth Industrial Revolution
  • Hear about the State of the IT skills gap
  •  Discuss how educators, workforce groups and employers can work together to pave the way for future-ready education systems for the next generation of workers
  • Explore new employment roles in reskilling and upskilling the existing workforce
Join leaders, advocates and changemakers in business, government, labor and education to address how to fuel talent in our city by building more effective partnerships for greater economic prosperity.
