Filling the talent pipeline for tech & delivering the ‘right’ people2020|21:34
This discussion follows on from the recent launch of SIGNAL ICT Grad School's legacy report ""Horizons 2020: Trends in Technology Education"", on what we need to do to evolve technology education to better serve a future New Zealand and future New Zealanders. Touching on a wider range of areas, particularly diversity and inclusion, how do we attract young people into tech, how do we train them and how to we bring them into our organisations. In a COVID world it is also about growing local talent as we can’t necessarily bring international migrants in to fill gaps. NZ’s demographics are changing, what impact does that have? What role do tech businesses need to play in developing the next generation, or is this (just) an education sector issue? This session will appeal to company leaders; recruiting managers (and those who support them); educators; policy advisors.
