Youth in IT Call to Action: Planning for New Annual Youth in IT Award, October 30
October 30 1:00 PM - 1:30 PM US/Eastern (UTC-4)Member Registration
Are you interested in supporting programs to encourage more young people to enter IT? We need you! Join us for a 30-minute planning call for the first-ever Youth in IT award to be given at Computerworld’s Honors Program in June 2013. The Computerworld Honors is a sister organization of the CIO Executive Council that honors those organizations who use information technology to benefit society. The new award, sponsored by the Council’s Youth in IT Community of Practice, will recognize an organization that is making a difference in recruiting youth into the IT profession and building the talent pipeline.
Creating this important award is a great opportunity to highlight how CIOs are ensuring the future of IT leadership. We need your input as we move forward. Specific agenda items we will cover in this first planning call include:
-Background of Computerworld Honors Program
-Determining award criteria
-Timing and next steps
