CompTIA, the leading trade association for the global information technology (IT) industry, today announced the creation of a new community committed to help increase the diversity, size and skill level of the industry’s workforce.
The Advancing Tech Talent and Diversity Community were formed by the merging of four established groups – CompTIA’s Advancing Diversity in Technology, Advancing Women in Technology, Future Leaders and Technology Lifecycle Services communities.
“The creation of the Advancing Tech Talent and Diversity Community is a natural evolution,” said Nancy Hammervik, executive vice president for industry relations at CompTIA. “On their own, each of the earlier communities did outstanding work. By bringing them together into a single entity we expand and enhance our ability to ‘crowd source’ the great ideas and thought leadership available from these talented individuals.”
