The RITE Summit

The 6th Annual RITE Summit

IT educators have long had to deal with the disruptions brought on by the rapid pace of technological change. Add on top of that the unprecedented level of upheaval and change due to COVID-19.

How might we spur more innovation in IT education to address this dynamic environment and propel demand-driven transformation of the IT workforce?

The 6th Annual RITE Summit will zero in on this critical topic.

The RITE Summit is the premier IT Talent event in Northeast Ohio. Here regional employers, educators, youth development, workforce service, and economic development rally around a shared vision for a diverse, highly skilled, industry-responsive IT workforce that is an economic driver to growth, competitiveness, and prosperity.

Hosted by Kathy Golden, Chief Information Officer, OEC, and Chair of RITE’s Regional Leadership Board, this year’s Summit provides a first-hand opportunity to learn from some of the best in the field. This includes nominees and the winner of the 2020 Best of Tech IT Educators of the Year category – Sue Baker from Lakeland Community College, Kenneth Atchison from Baldwin Wallace University, and Mark Harms from Lorain County Community College. Join Kathy and these leaders in a robust and insightful dialogue on Spurring Innovation in IT Education.

After the roundtable discussion, we will recognize our 2019-2021 RITE Teacher Rewards Winners and Honor Roll recipients and debut Explore IT, a new resource created by GCP RITE in partnership with many organizations across Northeast Ohio.
