What We Know

To enhance the Northeast Ohio’s economic vitality and competitiveness, the region’s employers must have access to a highly skilled industry-responsive IT workforce that will drive the innovation economy. Achieving this visions requires authentic transformation of the region’s IT education and workforce system, which includes a set of interventions along the education to employment pipeline, a long-view and systems-perspective, and accountability.

Local employers and their projected needs drive all of RITE’s work. RITE is addressing Northeast Ohio’s economic imperative to build a diverse, highly skilled IT workforce by narrowing the gap between education and the IT job skills employers need.
