Nicole Craine, President and CEO of Techtonic, joins Jeff Ton on Status Go to discuss ways organizations can widen their talent pipeline and the crucial role this plays in creating more diverse teams.  Techtonic is a software development company and is the creator of the first software development apprenticeship recognized by the Department of Labor.  Nicole dives into  how and why the apprenticeship got started as well as the way it fuels their core mission of diversity.  It’s common for tech companies to be competing in the same pool of talent, which can be limiting, frustrating and sometimes costly in terms of resources.  But, as Nicole points out, if you are willing to step a little outside the box and try something new, what you find might surprise you.
