In our first-ever multipart keynote presentation, Data Center World and AFCOM unveil a series of initiatives aimed at improving the data center industry and giving back to the community. You'll learn how you and your data center can get involved in these important projects. First, AFCOM unveils -- in a partnership with Infrastructure Masons and the Inclusive Engineering Consortium -- a capstone educational program for college seniors interested in careers in the data center to help promote the next generation of industry professionals. You'll learn how you can be a part of this important project and potentially have access to dozens of skilled new workers. Then, Kevin Kent of the Data Center Institute takes the stage to unveil AFCOM's own groundbreaking "DEEP Green" certification program during a presentation titled "Data Center Sustainability – Here’s Why It’s the Top Business Priority for 2022." Kent will discuss how consumers have become more aware and interested in environmental issues, but he'll demonstrate how sustainability has finally emerged as a top business priority for next year. Then he'll unveil the "DEEP Green" energy efficiency certification program and explain how your company can benefit from it.
