Program

The focus of the 2018 Spring Partner Meeting will be centered around presenting innovative ideas, strategies, and tactics to help expand the possibilities of where and how our partners source, recruit, hire, and retain technical talent. Building on the work we have done in previous Partner Meetings, we will continue to emphasize the necessity of viewing and addressing such issues through a lens of intersectionality.
