    As we approach the mid-point in your grant, we are beginning to hear about many great innovations and outcomes that are emerging from your TechHire projects. We understand the benefit of learning from your TechHire peers and want to provide a new opportunity for grantees to learn from each other. Starting September 17th, 2018, we are looking for grantees who have already done some great things to share their efforts on the TechHire Community of Practice (CoP.)

    On November 28, we're excited to be bringing you a session on employer engagement. In particular: how do you move from a passive grant-driven business advisory group (where you're trying to sell them on your TechHire program) to a true employer-led partnership where businesses are eager to come to the table and they're helping design and carryout the actual program?
