IT Industry Cluster Analytics Group Call for Participation

In an effort to promote regional economic growth within the information technology industry, Florida International University (FIU), is collaborating with The Haas Center at The University of West Florida (UWF) to host the Information Technology Industry Cluster Analytics Group on Friday, March 29th 2013. The Information Technology Industry Cluster Analytics Group will be composed of key communications, software, and modeling, simulation, and training (MST) companies in the information technology sector, who will come together as a focus group to discuss the workforce needs associated with Florida's information technology industry cluster.

Specifically, the discussion will be on ensuring access to the talent needed to drive your continued business success by a) determining current and future workforce needs b) identifying critical occupations and skill sets c) reviewing data that state policy makers will examine when making workforce training decisions; and d) advising on how to more closely align education/workforce training programs to meet the needs of the research and development arm of the information technology cluster in Florida. Your input is critical to help us inform policy makers on how Workforce Investment funds could best support the creation of a pipeline of skilled professionals for life sciences industries.

This event will be held on March 29, 2013 from 9:00am – 11:00am at Florida International University’s Reagan House located on the Modesto A. Maidique Campus at 10777 Southwest 16th Street Miami, Florida 33165. Breakfast will be provided.

Please contact Jenesis Ramirez at FIU’s Office of Engagement via phone: 305-348-4437 or email: jenramir@fiu.edu with questions and RSVP. Thank you for your interest and thoughtful participation.
