  • March Guest Blog: Women of Technology By Stephanie Styons, SVP at Racepoint Global

    March Guest Blog: Women of Technology By Stephanie Styons, SVP at Racepoint Global

    In February 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued the first Presidential Proclamation declaring the Week of March 8, 1980 as National Women’s History Week. President Carter wrote, “From the first settlers who came to our shores, from the first American Indian families who be-friended them, men and women have worked together to build this nation. Too often the women were unsung and sometimes their contributions went unnoticed. But the achievements, leadership, courage, strength and love of the women who built America was as vital as that of the men whose names we know so well.”  Seven years later, Congress declared March as National Women’s History Month. The month is set aside to honor women’s contributions to American history. Since it is National Women’s History Month, it seems only fitting to take a look back at some of the amazing women who have made significant contributions to the world of technology.

    February Guest Blog: MicroBachelors Programs - A Viable Solution for Upskilling

    MicroBachelors Programs: A Viable Solution for Upskilling - North Carolina employers are acutely aware of the shortage of skilled IT workers in our state. According to NC TECH, there were 28,312 IT job postings statewide in December 2019. North Carolina’s overall job growth is on track to outstrip its population growth by 2024, and we can’t rely on in-migration of talent to solve this problem – we must train and upskill the residents who are already here.
