Education

DPI will develop promising and diverse tech talent, focusing on high school through to the first job out of college, and current workers seeking new skills. We will focus on data analytics and computing, and their applications in sectors of strength, such as food and agriculture; health and wellness; finance and insurance; and transportation/logistics.
