Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) / Digital Media

Economic and Workforce Development (EWD) is an integral part of the California Community Colleges and its Doing What Matters for Jobs and the Economy framework, investing funding and resources in information & communication technology and digital media.

Become a Doing What Matters Business Partner: If you are interested in advising our regional teams about how to leverage funding and design curriculum to meet the needs of the information & communication technology and digital media industries, contact your regional expert below. EWD's industry-specific workforce services are coordinated by Deputy Sector Navigators who align community college and other workforce development resources with the needs of industry sectors. We recognize that we serve both business and the ‘learning’ public of California. Accordingly, our assessment of the industry and the workforce calls for us to develop and communicate career pathways for experienced adults as well as high school graduates.

Both users and producers face a continuing rapid evolution of technology that renders the in-demand skills of today the minimum skills of tomorrow. The ICT-Digital Media Sector Team is a first ever-statewide community college organization of education workforce professionals that are focused on supplying in-demand skilled worker solutions for your business challenges.
