Per Scholas Chief Revenue Officer Caitlyn Brazill Speaks at Capgemini’s Business to Planet New York Sustainability Connect Event

On June 18th, Per Scholas Chief Revenue Officer Caitlyn Brazill participated in a panel discussion at Capgemini’s Business to Planet New York Sustainability Connect event. During the panel discussion: Green Economy and Job Creation, panelists discussed ways to foster positive change towards a greener and more inclusive economy. They explored public education, training for green jobs and the landscape for green business development, as well as the importance of a skilled workforce equipped to drive innovation and sustainability across various sectors.

Caitlyn discussed the renewable industry’s increasing need for skilled tech talent, and Per Scholas’ commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive tech workforce. “Equity is imperative – we have a tremendous opportunity to reshape our economy in the coming years, and shift investment into the kind of jobs and companies that will foster a greener planet,” Caitlyn said. “But if we don’t develop the talent pipeline in an equitable manner and create real pathways into those roles, we will continue to replicate the kinds of inequality and lack of representation we see in the tech workforce today.

“Nearly 9 in 10 Per Scholas learners are people of color, more than 40% identify as women and the majority come from communities and families who have been overlooked as a source of technical talent. Green companies can think differently about talent pipelines, partnering with effective workforce development organizations such as Per Scholas to create opportunities for diverse talent, and to design customized training programs that meet their company’s evolving needs.”
