Commanding Conversations: Ready in Plain Sight

January 19, 2022

This virtual event featured a pair of energizing conversations on how women of color are ready, in plain sight, to transform the tech talent pipeline into a dynamic ecosystem of diverse talent. 

Command Shift, NPower and Emsi Burning Glass shared an early look at new data coming out this spring, using skills mapping to identify 250,000 women of color with foundational skills and transferable work experience, who in a matter of months and with a level of additional technical training, could join the tech workforce.

“This is actionable data. Not just data for the sake of data.”

– PaShon Mann,

VP Talent Acquisition and Diversity Equity and Inclusion,

Comcast NBCUniversal and Command Shift Steering Committee Member
