Technology is constantly evolving, but how is the workforce evolving with it? A recent study found that 93% of US and UK organizations consider AI to be a business priority, but 51% acknowledge they don't have the right mix of skilled AI talent to bring strategies to life. Attaining those capabilities is the never-ending rat race that every company from a start-up to a Fortune 500 is seeking to win, but recruiting the right workforce requires more than just finding a person with the right skills. Companies need to be cognizant of personal biases and make concerted efforts to recognize the potential in often overlooked populations.

In this discussion, TEKsystems, an IT global services provider who has trained more than 600,000 students, and Per Scholas, a national tech training nonprofit that has helped graduates in overlooked communities increase post-training income by 400%, will discuss effective strategies and real-world use cases on diverse recruiting and upskilling an existing workforce.
