We've talked about it a lot on this show--the growing need for qualified people to fill high tech jobs. And this month, Governor Gary Herbert signed a new bill designed to help Utahns prepare for those jobs.
Yesterday, Governor Herbert announced updates to the Talent Ready Utah program, an initiative aimed to help create enough talent to continue the state's economic growth, especially in Silicon Slopes. But even with all the coding camps, hack-a-tons and other opportunities popping up, some students can't participate because they can't access these programs. Which is why the Women's Tech Council is setting out to bring these programs to rural areas in Utah.
