21st Century Workforce

The 21st Century Workforce Committee recognizes that the country faces both short-term IT talent supply issues and long-term skills development opportunities. The committee addresses key high-skilled immigration proposals that are of interest to the technology industry, as well as science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and workforce pipeline issues. CompTIA staff and member representatives meet with relevant Congressional offices as well as various agencies and White House staff to address critical workforce concerns.

Specifically, the Committee advocates for high-skill and entrepreneurial visas, Green cards, visa processing, fees and reporting requirements. CompTIA is equally committed to increasing the domestic talent pipeline through STEM initiatives and workforce education reform and improvements. Participants include government relations professionals, in-house counsel, COOs, and HR professionals as well as attorneys from affiliate law firms.
