Building Tomorrow’s Workforce

Jobs in the software industry are growing faster than the US can fill them. Software is also generating new jobs across many different sectors that require an array of new skills. Both the government and the private sector have important roles in implementing policies that will prepare today’s workers and the next generation for the jobs software creates.

BSA released a workforce policy agenda to highlight focus areas for policymakers and business leaders in all industries, including STEM education, workforce retraining, alternative education programs, access to technology, and responsible immigration policy.
