SALT LAKE CITY (Jan. 30, 2017)— Less than a week after Gov. Herbert announced Talent Ready Utah in his State of the State address, Utah tech leaders joined legislators for Tech Day on the Hill to show their support for collaboration between industry, government and education. Today the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED), the Women Tech Council and Silicon Slopes announced a partnership to unite technology workforce development efforts.

“Utah’s tech industry has pressing workforce challenges that need to be addressed,” said Val Hale, executive director of GOED. “Formal partnerships with Women Tech Council and Silicon Slopes are an investment in the tech industry’s sustainable growth. We are grateful for their support and for our industry partners statewide.”
