About the event

It’s time for a Techtober edition of #VCLiftTheRock and we have a full line up of special guests!

Join us October 2nd from 11:30am to 1pm for a #VCLiftTheRock to learn about the Arkansas Center for Data Sciences (ACDS) apprenticeship program. Hear from some of the businesses participating in this exciting program and what these apprenticeships mean for the future of tech jobs in Arkansas!

ACDS partners with companies across all industries to facilitate apprenticeship programs in the state of Arkansas. Participants receive the advanced training component as they establish apprenticeship programs in IT, data science and cyber occupations. The ACDS curriculum strives to teach industry-recognized skills and allow individual corporations to teach their own specific culture and processes and tools.

The panel features: 

Bill Yoder - ACDS- Executive Director 

Lonnie Emard - ACDS - Director of Apprenticeship 

Melissa Johnston - First Orion - Director of Learning and Development 

Adam Holland - GlaxoSmithKline - Security Infrastructure Director
