2020 Education Champion Award
iMasons is taking a lead in accelerating the flow of talent into the Digital Infrastructure Industry. In order to fill the pipeline of new talent needed, we need to raise the awareness of young people to the importance of digital infrastructure and the exciting and rewarding career opportunities available.
iMasons launched the $1M Education Challenge in London in Nov 2018 to provide scholarships to students enrolling for courses that could lead to a career in Digital Infrastructure. We’ve raised over $300k to date and 50% of the scholarships are aimed at women.
But, our industry still needs to do a better job of conveying to Education institutions what kinds of training and skills are needed, and quantifying what the overall demand for people is. The Education sector requires this input in order to respond.
Now, more than ever, the industry needs to recognize leadership, and inspire progress in attracting and developing new talent. In 2020 Infrastructure Masons is launching the Education Champion Award to recognize individuals who are moving the needle on this industry imperative.
As the first year of the Education Champion Award, the iMasons leadership team chooses the first recipient. The iMason Education Champion will be announced at the iMasons Award Ceremony on December 16, 2020.
