Employment in computer and information technology occupations is projected to grow 13 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations, resulting in 557,100 new jobs.[1] This is an incredible statistic to contemplate. Given extraordinary leaps in computing power, massive proliferation of data, and emergence of practical AI applications, the demand for qualified technical expertise can be expected to grow exponentially. There are a few paths to address this talent gap, but one approach that is being taken is to recruit greater numbers of women and under-represented minority groups into the technology field, particularly since these groups are under-represented in the technology field and represent a largely untapped talent pool.
