Business in Vancouver: B.C. tech-sector diversity program gets ‘revamp’ with $29m in hand
By Tyler Orton
The B.C. government and two new partners within the tech sector are putting up a combined $29 million into the Innovator Skills Initiative (ISI). The goal of this initiative is to find job placements for 3,000 people facing barriers entering the sector — such as women, Indigenous people, Black people and other under-represented groups — by giving companies access to $10,000 grants.
