This local Kforce event is a great example of how organizations can help address the IT workforce shortage

With a shortage of talented people to fill the most in-demand STEM roles, as many as two million STEM jobs are predicted to go unfilled. The Kforce Kids' STEM Fair was formed to inspire future professionals to break into the STEM talent landscape. Due to the resounding success of their first event hosted at the Kforce headquarters in Tampa, FL, Kforce has since expanded their STEM fairs to a national level and are set to host an event in Reston, VA, on Saturday, August 17th!
We encouraging senior technology leaders and others that believe in STEM to bring their kids and spread the word. Many SIMCAC members (including board members) are planning to bring their children to the event. Event details and registration here.
