Now Hiring: A Conversation About Growing LA's Tech Workforce
Date: July 28, 2011
Location:Los Angeles
Now Hiring: A Conversation About Growing LA's Tech Workforce. 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: elementary and college education, adults seeking a career change and current employees.Panel includes: 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
Moderated by:
Ben Goldhirsh, CEO and Co-Founder of GOOD. See
