Through a local partnership with Santa Cruz Works, the Workforce Development Board of Santa Cruz County (WDB) is bringing the technology sector together to identify workforce needs and to develop solutions. Key technology industry sector leaders have identified, anecdotally, talent shortages to fill need in the local labor market. The goal of the Technology Sector Initiative is to identify what the key opportunities and actions in the sector are. A key strategy to identifying gaps and building solutions, in addition to using available data on the local labor market, will be implementing and facilitating a series of meeting with key technology sector partners. The Tech Sector Initiative launches in April 2017.
We will post more information as it becomes available.
