California has a designated Career Technical Education pathways program available to students from middle school through community college to aid in their pursuit of careers in technology. Because of the very population that makes up California’s students, this program should encourage more diversity in the tech industry. So, is it working? What are some of its successes? And what are some of the barriers that still exist to diversifying the industry?
Join the Council June 30 for "Diversity in Tech through Career Pathways" -- our next meeting of the Chamber's Innovation & Technology Council -- featuring Sacramento Mayor-Elect Darrell Steinberg (via Skype), to discuss the bills he authored on career pathways while in the Senate, as well as the issues that surround this topic.
This event is open to Chamber members and invited guests of Bixel Exchange.
The Innovation & Technology Council at the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce identifies and engages with business clusters that have economic growth potential — including signature, emerging and innovative industry groups. The Council aims to promote policies that will strengthen these industries, elevate their global reach, drive job creation and regional economic prosperity.
