What is the Workforce Investment Network (WIN)?
Carolina Fintech Hub is teaming up with community and national leaders to create new pathways for untapped talent to find great work in technology. WIN will offer paid professional development to underserved, motivated adults in the Carolinas. Upon successful completion of the intensive 24-week program, the participant will be offered full time employment at a predetermined sponsor institution.
- Provide upward mobility opportunities for underserved communities
- Combat the perceived lack of technology talent in the region
- Increase the number of minorities and women pursuing careers in technology
