STACK Infrastructure has expanded its Women in Data Centres programme, which aims to encourage new and diverse talent into the data centre industry.
The programme provides a year-long, full-time, paid apprenticeship, targeting candidates of all backgrounds who do not have prior data centre operations experience. Apprentices train alongside industry professionals as ‘Critical Operations Technicians’ and have the opportunity to be placed in a permanent role in one of STACK Americas’ facilities upon completion of the programme.
Following the success of last year’s programme, STACK has placed candidates and continues to accept applications for the 2023 class.
Although the Women in Data Centres programme is actively looking to support women into the industry, STACK has said it is an equal opportunity employer and encourages all interested applicants to apply.
“We are proud to greatly expand this programme after a successful first year, which experienced tangible, positive results with previous apprentices who are now thriving in their full-time positions within the data centre field,” said Brian Cox, Chief Executive Officer of STACK Americas.
“It is essential that the digital infrastructure industry diversify its technical operations talent pool by addressing the underrepresentation of women and diverse groups to create an equitable environment where new voices and new ideas can flourish.”
