Idea: To achieve measurable progress in Columbus, we need diverse talent engaged in technology. A community project I’d like to develop is increasing the pipeline of high school students into technology-related fields. We can partner with companies, community organizations and school districts to expose students of all backgrounds to the possibilities of technology careers. Columbus is an ideal location for this type of program due to the city’s active technology community and numerous local college opportunities. The only way we can create sustainable change is by empowering the young students in our city to become leaders and encouraging them to want to learn more about the power of technology and its impact.
