As part of a major drive to bridge the talent gap and increase digital infrastructure industry recruitment, Ekkosense has become a supporter of the Infrastructure Masons (iM) Scholarship Fund.
The iM Scholorship fund supports educational programmes, funds scholarships and seeks to help to define the digital infrastructure job ladder to support the evolving needs of industry sector businesses.
Simon Allen, executive director of The Infrastructure Masons said, “One of the biggest challenges facing the fast-growing digital infrastructure sector is the shortage of talent entering our industry.
“IM’s mission is to ‘Unite the Builders of the Digital Age’ by creating the platform for our members to connect, grow and give back.
“One of our key current initiatives is ‘Bridging the Talent Gap’, where Infrastructure Masons is focused on funding scholarships for approved degrees and certificates.
“We’re delighted that EkkoSense is supporting IM, and – specifically – our Education Challenge fund, with projects including the creation and support of a community of digital infrastructure educators, alignment of mentoring and internship programs, as well as the funding of scholarships.”
Dean Boyle, CEO EkkoSense added, “As an organisation we’re focused on building out our business providing powerful, software-driven thermal optimisation solutions for critical live environments.
“However we’re also aware that we’re part of a broader digital infrastructure community, so we’re proud to be supporting the Infrastructure Masons activities via The Influence Board.
“At EkkoSense we’re already engaged with local universities supporting PhD and research programmes and one of our senior engineers won last year’s DCS Individual of the Year Award.”
