About the Tech Talent Conference

The tech talent outlook in 2023 has radically shifted. Hiring that was ‘off the charts’ is now the slowest in 5 years. Employees who were leaving in record numbers are now staying. AI continues to impact every element of the hiring process. Amid these changes, investments in nontraditional talent strategies slowed. Equity investments in new hires and talent development strategies reduced. And education struggled to keep pace training talent prepared to work in the modern workforce. During the din and disruption of 2023, focus on our shared future is required. Eye on the ball: equitable, end to end, tech talent development.
