Event description

Description

The Iowa Department of Education, in support of the Future Ready Iowa Initiative, is partnering with the Technology Association of Iowa (TAI), Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO), and Iowa Governor's STEM Advisory Council to develop promotional materials to highlight a wide range of exciting and fulfilling careers offered in Iowa's growing and innovative Information Technology (IT) fields.

Employers from these and related industries (manufacturing, health care, etc...) are invited to participate in this employer-only roundtable/focus group opportunity to review and discuss proposed statewide career awareness materials, which will include not only descriptions of various positions, but also career pathways clearly showing how to enter and successfully advance through computer science, information technology, and related careers in Iowa.

A total of 5 virtual events are being held in April and are broken out by general area/region of the state - Northeastern, Southeastern, Central, Southwestern, & Northwestern. Employers are welcome to join any of these sessions, but are encouraged to attend whichever most closely represents their primary business location in order to address any regional or local needs and concerns with hiring a skilled tech workforce. Additional information and resources will be sent to each group prior to each session.

Similar projects were completed for other industries like Health Science, Building Trades, and Advanced Manufacturing and can be downloaded at SectorPartnerhips.EducateIowa.gov. Contact Joe.Collins@iowa.gov for additional information about this project and to offer any feedback if unable to attend.
