Diverse Digital Workforce Reception – November 6

Diverse Digital Workforce Panel and Reception
The Fourth Industrial Revolution: Is Your Workforce Ready?



Date: November 6, 2017
Location: Washington, DC


Join TIA and Panasonic for an evening of camaraderie, along with meaningful "straight talk" on diversity and the digital ready workforce.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is upon us, as digitization is transforming every aspect of business and connectivity -- products, services, supply chains, sales, distribution and customer service.

Yet in every sector, the workforce is not keeping up with demand. Individually and collectively, we all can play a practical part in closing the gap between the demand and availability of qualified workers - and diversity of the workforce is a compelling imperative in that effort.

A diverse workforce makes good business sense. Studies show that the greater the diversity in a workforce, the greater the positive impact to a corporation’s bottom line – 15X sales revenue over non-diverse workforces. 

The panel of experts, along with audience discussion, will reveal actionable steps to encourage and embrace workforce diversity through:

  • Education is Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM)
  • Transferring knowledge from generation to generation
  • Establishing tech training programs within the company
  • Focusing on cultural acceptance in the workplace
