Join Technology Access Foundation (TAF) for one of the most important events of its series where we’ll offer a holistic approach to talent development. The event, sponsored by Zillow will explore impactful ways you and your company can develop a diverse talent pipeline in Washington State.
Using TAF’s Corporate Alliance Program as an engagement model, company representatives should leave our session equipped with the tools and resources necessary to influence the next generation of industry leaders and begin implementing long-term recruitment strategies through talent development, now.
Participants will have the opportunity to:
• Network with like-minded industry professionals interested in building a diverse and qualified pool of job candidates in Washington State.
• Hear from companies who have experience working with K12 students and developing programs to bolster students’ knowledge and understanding of industry careers and skills.
• Explore realistic avenues to engage with the next generation of leaders, regardless of company size and/or budget.
• Learn more about how STEMbyTAF is bridging the gap between industry and K12 education through engaging, real-life STEM opportunities.
Only two representatives per company, please.
Light breakfast will be provided.
