Washingtonian Panel – How the Tech Sector is Upskilling the Workforce

Featuring esteemed speakers from 1901 Group, AWS, Byte Back, and special guest, Senator Mark Warner

As the world continues to feel the reverberating effects of COVID-19 on all aspects of life, the US labor market is experiencing a volatility like never before. As globalization and automation have reduced the number of manufacturing jobs available, the tech sector is contending with a lack of skilled workers to take on the myriad of responsibilities that are increasingly running the world.

On February 11 at 12:00 PM ET,  Washingtonian will be hosting a virtual discussion on  “How the Tech Sector is Upskilling the Workforce”. A panel of esteemed speakers will address what investments need to be made by the government and tech industry to ensure that training is accessible and available, what processes should be in place to ensure a wider group of applicants are approached, and how innovations in technologies can help propel these initiatives forward.

Joining the conversation will be Senator Mark Warner, VA;  Sonu Singh, Founder and CEO of 1901 Group, a Leidos company; Elizabeth Lindsey, CEO of Byte Back; and Kim Majerus, Leader of Education, State, and Local Government of AWS.
