How an apprenticeship pilot might solve tech's diversity problem
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts a surge of over 1.3 million technology sector jobs by 2020. These jobs will fall under computer programming and computer support specialist roles. Despite the increase in jobs, the tech sector will have trouble filling these roles because of a widening skills gap in the marketplace. A lack of representation among women, African-Americans, Hispanics, new immigrants and even veterans makes it difficult to create any diversity within the field.
