Working with NPower to Create Pathways to Economic Prosperity for All
Our goal is to build, retain, and grow a highly competent, competitive, and diverse pipeline of individuals who are capable of leading in the future.
In this case study
Our partnership with NPower spans over a decade and seeks to help launch the careers for military veterans and young adults from under-resourced communities by providing these groups with training, professional development, internships, mock interviews and job placement assistance.

NPower envisions a future where our domestic technology workforce is diverse, and clear pathways exist for all people regardless of ethnicity, gender, or socio-economic background to succeed in our digital economy.
Our strategic partnership centers around our passion to develop future leaders using Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) as the platform. Our affiliation with NPower has resulted in hiring over 50 graduates as interns, apprentices and full-time employees.
