Tech Talent Coalition Kick-Off Meeting

February 17, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Join the Conversation! The Tech Talent Coalition invites the South Florida community to create a big impact!

Over the last few years, South Florida has been among the U.S. metro areas with the highest growth in tech job creation. The region has also witnessed a significant increase in student enrollment numbers across tech programs offered by local academic institutions and training providers. However, many graduates from these education programs ultimately leave South Florida after they are unable to find a tech job locally, while employers struggle to find local talent. This disconnect is the challenge the Tech Talent Coalition will solve at a regional level.

What exactly is the Tech Talent Coalition?

The Tech Talent Coalition will be an industry-led, tech-sector partnership that brings together a critical mass of business leaders with education and training providers to align academic programs with the actual needs of the tech industry. As part of the Coalition, employers will drive ongoing discussion regarding common priorities in required skills sets, as well as the development of employer-driven training models that guarantee pathways to employment for South Florida residents.

The Kick-Off of the Tech Talent Coalition won’t just be another convening about tech talent. It will signify the launch of a ground-breaking effort to drive active collaboration among critical stakeholders to create a sustainable and fortified local tech talent pipeline.

Who should join the Tech Talent Coalition?

  • Decision-makers in businesses looking for talent in tech-related positions in South Florida;
  • C-level executives that believe that the success of their business is related to the success of their community;
  • Academic institution and training providers wanting to stay up to date with hiring trends in tech;
  • Individuals with a passion for Miami’s tech talent development.
