There are many different ways to get involved.
CUNY TechWorks would not be able to serve hundreds of New Yorkers without the support of our funders, college and industry partners, students and professionals. Please see below for all the different and important roles our supporters play in helping TechWorks achieve its goal of creating a diverse, NYC-bred tech talent pipeline.
Join the Advisory Board
Becoming a member of the CUNY TechWorks Industry and Workforce Advisory Board provides you with a stellar opportunity to have a voice in the design and development of the TechWorks program. As a Board Member, you will provide support and guidance to CUNY CEWP and its partnering community colleges on key areas such as job roles and titles, industry skill and competency needs, and curriculum development.
Become a Curriculum Partner
CUNY TechWorks is embracing an innovative and industry informed approach to curriculum development. We invite you to take a seat with practitioners, industry thought leaders, and CUNY faculty in building applied and industry relevant curriculum that provides immediate value to students as well as employers hiring in the tech sector.
Become an Employer Partner
By collaborating with CUNY TechWorks, you will gain access to a pool of bright, motivated and eager individuals who are ready to contribute and make a positive impact on your business. Plus, our talent pool is filled with industrious and enthusiastic individuals from a diverse array of backgrounds.
Tell Us What Matters to You
CUNY TechWorks staff and partners are always interested in learning more about how New York City’s tech ecosystem is evolving, emerging trends, and new skills needs. We invite employers, professionals in the field, and industry representatives to weigh in on the skills that matter most to them in entry-level talent in software development, web development and design, and network support and administration.
For those who are interested, we are organizing “skills mapping workshops,” where industry and faculty meet to discuss industry-valued skills and conducting one-on-one interviews to meet employers, HR personnel, hiring managers, and professionals in the field to learn more about career pathways, how to enter, and what people need to get ahead.
If you are interested in either of these opportunities or know someone who might be, please visit our CUNY TechWorks Projects page to learn how to get involved.
The New York City Labor Market Information Service at the CUNY Graduate Center (NYCLMIS) is the go-to resource for action-oriented intelligence about the labor market. As CUNY TechWorks’ research partner, NYCLMIS is collaborating with faculty, employers, and subject matter experts to inform program development and career planning around jobs in software development, web development and design, and network support and administration.
