For the first time, The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) and Washington DC Economic Partnership (WDCEP) will participate and activate a #WeDC House at By The People. The #WeDC house is a go-to destination to learn about how Washington, DC is the Capital of Inclusive Innovation.
DMPED will be partnering with Deloitte Consulting for their annual Deloitte Impact Day. The purpose of this strategy workshop is aimed to better understand the hiring needs, skill sets, and qualifications that tech companies are seeking when making hiring decisions. As a result, this will allow the District to focus specific funding for training to help DC residents meet the hiring criteria.
