Technology company Infosys announced a new partnership with a community college in Rhode Island to develop workers for digital jobs on Tuesday, with the goal of forming similar arrangements elsewhere in the country.
Infosys, an Indian digital design and technology company, formally launched its design and innovation center in Providence. Company executives said they're dedicating a lab there for employees to work with Community College of Rhode Island students.
College - President - Meghan - Hughes - Students
College President Meghan Hughes said students will explore ways to work with new technology, learn marketable skills and build a professional network. She said Infosys understands the talent that community college students represent and the role the schools can play.
Infosys CEO Salil Parekh and Infosys President Ravi Kumar said they'd like to eventually form partnerships with community colleges near the company's other U.S. hubs in Hartford, Connecticut, Indianapolis, Indiana and Raleigh, North Carolina, and near new centers in Arizona and Texas. Parekh said the company is committed to workforce development and wants to recruit students from all walks of life.
Something - Infosys
"It's something Infosys is extremely proud of doing, and wants to do more," he said.
Kumar said the lab is an experiment that can be scaled up nationally.
