[Virtual] Finding Emerging Talent in STEM

Wednesday, April 20, 2022
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

The talent market is more competitive than ever, and nowhere is that competition more fierce than in Science, Tech, Engineering, and Math (STEM) related fields. Over the past 10 years, the growth in STEM jobs was three times greater than in non-STEM jobs, and the pipeline of potential candidates has not been able to keep up with demand. Employers must think creatively to stand out in the crowd, developing new strategies and relationships to attract and retain the right talent for the jobs of the future.

Join us for this program that will focus on addressing the key challenges facing employers. The discussion will highlight successful strategies for connecting with, developing, and retaining the right talent for the innovation economy. Hear from industry leaders in talent attraction, training, and apprenticeship development with proven success implementing talent business solutions.

Speakers to Date:
Joshua Funches, Accenture Apprentice Graduate & Current Software Engineer Associate
Jennifer Johnson Kebea, Ed.D., President, Campus Philly
Brinda Rajaraman, Managing Director, Accenture
David Zuzga, PhD, Associate Dean, Biomedical Studies, The Wistar Institute
Moderated by: Malik Brown, President and CEO, Graduate! Philadelphia
