2012 Computerworld Honors Laureate
The New York City Housing Authority was designated a 2012 Computerworld Honors Laureate, in recognition of the pioneering resident IT training program designed to prepare highly motivated young residents for lucrative careers in cutting-edge information technology. The 16-month pilot program leads to a certificate in computer technology underwritten by Columbia University, with skills necessary to succeed in the corporate work environment. The graduates from the first class of 2012 gained employment as consultants at NYCHA and other major employers. The program reflects the Board’s commitment to creating a broad range of employment opportunities for residents, including in areas that demand and reward skills in information technology and other lucrative fields.
