I enjoyed this event thanks for letting us know about the event!
You're invited to join #TechinMotion's Tech Education panel!
This panel consists of New York’s biggest and brightest tech education innovators in the technology and innovation education community discussing what steps are being taken to close the STEM skills gap, as well as how public and private institutions are uniquely addressing this problem. We will also be discussing the New York City technology communities recent events and how to utilize early education to change the ratio and encourage more young women to go into technology, as well as how business and tech leaders can recruit and educate junior level engineers and provide career advancement and professional development opportunities internally to increase engineer retention rates.
Following the panel discussion, we will open up the event to a Q & A session for the audience to ask any remaining questions.
