First: Connect to the CompTIA Profile on LinkedIn, here: https://www.linkedin.com/company/comptia/ 
 
Second, stay tuned for the "Live" event on May 27th at 2PM Eastern.
As we look to our future post covid-19, organizations will continue to ensure the health, well-being, and productivity of team members.  The new normal will continue with more virtual teams, online meetings and skilled technology workers that keep environments safe from hackers and employees up and running – meaning that your IT team needs to be at the top of their game. 
Join the Advancing Tech Talent and Diversity Community’s discussion with Diego Ferrer, CIO, Dept. of Aviation, City of Chicago and Dima Elissa, CEO, Founder of VisMed 3D. We’ll focus on top skills required for the new normal and strategies that help you build/acquire a “best in class” technology workforce. 
As a warm-up to this LinkedIn Live event, I did a podcast with Yvette Steele and Caroline Smith of the Advancing Tech Talent and Diversity Executive Council. Listen here:
Podcast info:
Understanding the needs of the individuals on your team can be the difference between success and failure for workers as well as the organization.  What your team needed last month is not the same as the needs of this month and is guaranteed to change in the coming months. The status quo may be gone for good as each employee has different needs and desires relating to their work.  
As we manage the present and look to the future, leverage this break in tradition to be more creative - positioning employees and the organization for greater success.  Join the Advancing Tech Talent and Diversity Community’s discussion with community executive council members Karl Palachuk, Owner, Small Biz Thoughts and Caroline Smith, Owner, Dataworks Consulting as they share insights on the best ways to help employees deliver the best value, the role of company culture and the importance embracing new possibilities.
We’ll continue this conversation via LinkedIn Live on 5/27 at 1:00 CST – mark your calendars now.  We want to learn about what’s going on in your business as you manage through this crisis. Please take 2 minutes to respond to our 3-question survey. We’ll highlight and address your responses during the LinkedIn Live session. See you there!
