How can your company best implement tech apprenticeships?

You’ve probably heard of tech apprenticeships — those workforce development programs that typically offer paid, hands-on technical training. How can they be used as a pathway for a stronger workforce? How can they be incorporated into your company’s recruitment strategy? To those who have introduced them at their own organizations, one benefit is clear: They can bring more Black and brown professionals into STEM fields.

During this month’s Most Diverse Tech Hub workshop, we’ll hear from Jerelyn Rodriguez, cofounder and CEO of The Knowledge House, to give you actionable ways to incorporate tech apprenticeships into your org.

The Knowledge House uses bridge employment and an earn-and-learn program model to help job seekers enter the technology industry. Learn how the org has improved this model over time, and how talent providers and companies are using apprenticeships and work-based learning programs to secure talent. Through The Knowledge House’s work, it’s built partnerships in Atlanta, Newark, Los Angeles and New York that gave each cohort access to cash, laptops and industry certifications.

The Most Diverse Tech Hub Initiative is a program created by in partnership with the City Philadelphia’s Department of Commerce.
