Tech Talent Denver April Meeting

Wednesday, April 10, 2024 (8:00 AM - 10:00 AM) (MDT)


For April's Tech Talent Denver Meeting, we will share the key priority areas that were uncovered during March's Tech Talent Denver Executive Roundtable.  In addition to sharing the priority areas, we will facilitate guided breakout sessions to pinpoint the talent needs for Colorado's technology industry as we continue to drive towards intentional action. 

Tech Talent Denver strives to create a space where industry leaders and community partners can come together to address and begin solving some of our tech industry’s most pressing challenges.  With a focus on addressing talent needs in the Denver Metro Region,  we will support a thriving information and technology industry by generating discussion and action amongst industry leaders.  

We will also collaborate with community and regional partners to support, educate, develop, and train a viable tech workforce.  Tech Talent Denver is led by co-chairs Rolf Kramer, Senior Market Director of Colorado and Arizona at Akkodis, and Sarah Herzog, Senior Director of Strategy & Collaboration at Ardent Mills.  Tech Talent Denver is co-convened with Denver Economic Development & Opportunity, and Arapahoe/Douglas Works!
