LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
The Illinois Technology Foundations mission is to support the development of the Illinois/region's human capital talent pipeline - focus is on technology talent. We as a nation and a region have not done a good job of building our human capital talent pipeline. This issues has been documented and there is some evidence that parents who had technology careers have discourage their children from going into the field. There are huge decreases in the enrollment of higher education technology degrees.
The Foundation is focused on rebuilding and fostering a regional environment that will created awareness with grammar school children as to technology career paths, refine skills in high school, and support the regions higher education graduates in the pursuit of a relevant technology degree.
ITF does this by developing and managing targeted programs within the talent pipeline, as well as supporting those designed by others. This is done by facilitating relationships and efforts across industry, academia, and students.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We need a logo for the Foundation. The complete name is "Illinois Technology Foundation" . We are unable to get the url "ITF", but we do have variations of the longer name. The site URL is illinoistechfoundation.org
We need a strong identity for the name.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Industry (user of technology or suppliers)
We want them to think that we are will help them overcome a problem in developing the technology talent pipeline. We want them to think we start at the beginning of that pipeline by getting kids to understand the careers in the field, we want high school students to be taught technology principals and uses that prepare them for 21st century jobs. Then we want them to know that our region's students and educators are working to make technology higher education even more relevant.
Building a talent pipeline includes engaging academia. We want to supply them with current knowledge and access to industry to support their efforts in teaching 21st century technology principals and skills. We want to be a partner by bridging industry and academia.
We want them to know that the Technology is a viable career choice for their children. Technology careers are not from their generation. We will educate them on this.
We become a resource for them when looking at career alternatives.
We are nonprofit and we will need to make volunteering a rewarding and easy thing to do.
We will look for funding from foundations and we will need to inviting for them
