BizTech Names Creating IT Futures One of Top ‘25 Nonprofit IT Influencers Worth a Follow.’

In its recent annual list of nonprofit tech influencers one should follow on the web and in social media, BizTech named Creating IT Futures among the top 25. 


Here’s what BizTech had to say about CompTIA’s tech workforce charity:

In addition to equipping people with knowledge and skills needed to launch a career in technology, Creating IT Futures has an active website — as well as a blog and podcasts that frequently tell stories of successful technologists, including many about people who have transitioned successfully from often dead-end jobs into upwardly mobile IT positions.
