“Grass Roots/Tech Community Driven Workforce Development Models”
Most technology oriented workforce development models involve a top-down approach where traditional educators, economic development teams, etc work towards implementing mentoring, training and job placement programs. But what if technology workforce development initiatves were driven by the actual members of a regional tech community – software developers, network engineers, database administrators, system engineers and the like. What if seasoned technology “fishermen” actually designed, developed and implemented the methods utilized to teachand mentor others to “technologically fish.”
This presentation will discuss the motivations, strategies, and lessons learned from such an effort that is being executed and carried out by tech/software developer community members in Chattanooga, TN.
Presenter: Bruce Tate, Founder – Groxio
