The Informatics Diversity-Enhanced Workforce (iDEW) equips Indiana high school students with the IT and informatics skills they need to succeed.
The IU School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI collaborates with communities, industry, and high schools to help high schools offer free iDEW classes to students in urban neighborhoods, rural areas, and everywhere in between. Our goal: to provide a successful and diverse workforce that can power the digital economy.
Our workforce development initiative opens opportunities for underrepresented minorities by providing them with skills that meet the needs of tech employers in Indiana and nationwide.
Through community partnerships, iDEW is committed to attracting diverse groups of teens to informatics subjects with:
- Innovative, relevant, and engaging programs
- Mentorship support
- Development of real-world skills and knowledge
- Curriculum developed with input from tech industries
