    Why Millennial Mainframers Reconcile Today’s Digital Paradox

    March 26, 2019
    In my role as an observer of today’s tech-infused business world, I see a digital paradox: As vigorously as we glorify the quickening pace of technological invention, we wring our collective hands over the accelerating march toward technological obsolescence. It seems as though moments after celebrating advances in technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), smart devices and cloud computing, we tech pundits feel compelled to obsess about their limitations and call for the next generation of innovation to replace them.

We can’t let a “man-made” hurdle like the Confidence Gap make us stumble.

    December 12, 2018
    “The tech workforce is, for all practical purposes, right now fully employed,” says David Hyman, president of the Center for Tech Workforce Solutions (CTWS). “Everybody who is qualified to work in tech has a job. And yet, we have 800,000 jobs a year that go unfilled. That’s a tremendous number of opportunities for people to improve their lives, a tremendous number of places where businesses are falling short because they don’t have the skilled people in place.”

    October 25, 2018

The Center for Technology & Workforce Solutions (CTWS) made its debut on October 24, and it will study and promote policies for training a new generation of tech workers.
