There is a critical shortage of people in the data center industry. This shortage is expected to get worse over the next few years as predictions state that 30% of the workforce will be graying out or retiring. With college curriculum lagging, new attention is being paid to skills based hiring and hiring to address gender parity and diversity so that workforces in tech are more in line with the users of tech as a community. This panel is designed to be audience interactive and cover topics such as the right way to pen an inclusionary job description, how to find parallel skills, alternate training methods and other tools that attendees can take home with them from the workshop.
