Tech Talent Pipeline

We are organizing for impact...will you join us? Colorado's tech economy is growing such that our ability to develop a workforce is not keeping up with the demand in the marketplace. It is, therefore, critical we focus on building a pipeline of qualified workers to support the ongoing success of Colorado's tech economy.

At the briefing, we will be hearing from the Colorado Department of Higher Education and the Office of Economic Development on the current state of the tech talent pipeline, continue with CTA's role in the landscape, then finish with an a panel of company representatives participating in CTA's Talent Center programs.

She focusses on issues related to talent development for the state, often bridging the data behind education (supply) and workforce (demand). Lauren will be presenting an overview of Colorado's demographics as they pertain to education and workforce development in tech as well as strategies the state is implementing to support a more cohesive talent pipeline.
