Now Hiring: A Conversation About Growing LA's Tech Workforce
Thursday, July 28, 2011 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
Los Angeles, CA
At a time when unemployment hovers at nine percent, there are more than two million unfilled jobs in America, many of which are in computer-related industries. In fact, because the demand for technology professionals outpaces the supply, business leaders in California are uniting to push for immigration reform to allow more skilled foreign workers into the country to fulfill the need.
To help address the challenge, GOOD and University of Phoenix invite you to join us for a panel discussion about how to develop a workforce that can meet the technology and engineering needs of Los Angeles' business community.
All aspects of developing a workforce will be covered, from elementary and college education to adults seeking a career change and current employees who need to learn the latest skills to stay competitive.
Panel to include:
Eric Hirshberg, CEO, Activision Publishing
Blair Smith, Dean, College of Information Systems and Technology, University of Phoenix
Bernadette Lucas, Principal, Melrose Elementary Math Science Technology Magnet
Peter Diamandis, Founder and Chairman, X PRIZE Foundation
Eric Garcetti, President, L.A. City Council
Ben Goldhirsh, CEO and Co-Founder of GOOD
Please RSVP here by 5pm, July 27th. For questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
