  • What do tech employers seek in terms of hard and soft skills and where do they source their talent?
  • How do higher education and other post-secondary programs fare in preparing and placing their students in tech sector jobs?
Where and how can government leaders engage to best support the human capital needs of tech sector companies and workers?
