Educating the Workforce of the Future

The future and vibrancy of the Massachusetts technology sector is dependent on a strong commitment to public education and a deliberate nurturing of the entrepreneurial spirit.

The goal of the Council’s IT workforce initiatives is to foster the development of an adequate supply of skilled workers. The Council has focused on both education and training, both K – 12 and higher education, and both teachers and students.

Current efforts to educate the workforce of the future include:
  • Software Council Education Foundation – Middle School Math and Science
  • Boston University Student Design Program – Higher Education
  • Commonwealth Information Technology Initiative (CITI) – Higher Education
  • National Science Foundation Study of Men and Women in the IT Workplace –Workplace Research
