BWI Business Partnership & Greater Washington Partnership to Identify IT Needs in Baltimore/Greater Washington

Take Survey

(DEADLINE: JULY 1, 2019)

With generous support from JPMorgan Chase & Co., Greater Washington Partnership, The BWI Business Partnership, and seven other partners are in engaged in TalentReady—an effort to expand access to economic opportunity for thousands of young people and help meet the growing demand for IT talent. TalentReady brings together K-12 and higher education leaders from five communities in the Capital Region to partner with each other and employers on designing pathways that connect postsecondary degrees, certifications, and real-world work experiences to in-demand technology careers.

The following organizations are joining us in these efforts:

  • Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore
  • Downtown Partnership of Baltimore
  • Prince George's Chamber of Commerce
  • Federal City Council
  • Greater Washington Chamber of Commerce
  • Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce
  • Northern Virginia Technology Council

As part of this effort, an Employer Signaling System (ESS) is being developed to provide regional labor market information, validate data findings with employers through a survey, and engage subject matter experts to refine the requirements for high-demand tech jobs. In late 2019, the ESS will be rolled out as an online tool providing actionable data for educators to create and enhance IT career pathways.

BWIBP and GWP are proud to work with the Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore to validate the data’s findings and ensure that Baltimore area residents are prepared for the jobs of the future.
