About Tech Works collage banner

Created to give local industry, employers, and workforce partners a voice in the design and development of CUNY TechWorks, the Industry Advisory Board provides support and guidance to CUNY CEWP and its partnering community colleges on key areas such as job roles/titles, industry skill and competency needs, and curriculum development, as well as addressing questions like “what does job readiness look like for entry-level tech talent?”

Additionally, the advisory board plays an important role in helping the CUNY TechWorks team better understand labor market demand in NYC’s tech sector including the different talent needs across the various industry segments like media, financial services, and healthcare and mapping career pathways in the local tech ecosystems.

Comprised of CUNY staff, faculty and administrators, employers, industry intermediaries, and city government, the Industry Advisory Board works collaboratively to implement TechWorks and ensure it meets its main goal of creating a robust and diverse talent pipeline that is ready and able to fill available job opportunities for local and regional companies.
