What is a Think Tank?
The Center for Technology & Workforce Solutions (CTWS) is a new think tank that will strive to articulate certain universal truths – steps, methods, tools, policies, etc. – that are the hallmark of success when working to create a larger, more diverse, happier tech workforce. While think tanks are not quite a "dime a dozen," they have taken on a familiar caste – publish papers and influence policymakers. The message we hear loud and clear from stakeholders in the tech workforce space is, there needs to be a fresh approach – build community, define terms, and curate best practices.
