INCOMPAS: IMPACT ACT Brings Jobs of the Future, to Help Close Digital Divide

Chip Pickering, CEO of INCOMPAS, statement on Senators Wicker, Sinema and Scott introduction of the Improving Minority Participation and Careers in Telecommunications IMPACT Act:

“Networks of the future create jobs of the future. The bipartisan IMPACT Act from Senators Roger Wicker, Krysten Sinema and Tim Scott places workforce training at the center of the fight to close the digital divide by making career-building opportunities available to our Historic Black Colleges and Tribal Communities. Building a new, diverse telecommunications workforce is critical to deploying the internet to all communities and winning the race to 5G.

“We thank the Senators for their leadership, and look forward to working to pass and implement future deployment and workforce policy.”
