This is a great template for other communities to retrain Covid-19 displaced workers for a career in cybersecurity. City of Sacramento is leading the way and showcasing how public/private partnerships can help the community and make the digital world safer for everyone!

Thanks to the City of Sacramento, Mayor Darrell Steinberg and the City Council’s grant approval of our Collective6 Workforce Development Recovery Program, several hundreds of COVID-19 displaced workers will get the opportunity to get re-skilled and hired into new jobs.

I am proud to be partnering with the Greater Sacramento Urban League, CompTIA, Square Root Academy, Code for Hood and Animation Intern to deliver these fast track programs to create new job opportunities for Sacramento Valley residents.
