Assurant, Inc., a global provider of risk management solutions, and Good360, a global leader in product philanthropy and purposeful giving, today announced the Assurant Cares: Tech for Good agreement to redistribute surplus technology to nonprofit organizations. Throughout 2018, Assurant expects to donate more than 1,000 laptops and computers to Good360 for charitable reuse.
In addition, the Assurant Foundation will provide grant support to Good360 to install new hard drives and prepare the surplus equipment to help an array of charities repurpose the technology for the greater good of the communities they serve.“We operate our business with a meaningful environmental commitment – with active programs to encourage conservation and sustainable practices,” said Shawn Kahle, vice president, Corporate Responsibility & Community Engagement and executive director, Assurant Foundation. “Our relationship with Good360 allows us to responsibly reduce waste by giving new life and purpose to technology we no longer use, while equipping nonprofits with additional resources to serve the needs of others.” “Partnerships with socially responsible companies like Assurant are the cornerstone of the work that Good360 does,” said Richard Barney, EVP of Partnerships for Good360. “Technology donations are important because they can fill a gap for nonprofit organizations, allowing them to focus their budgets on programs and services. These donations also empower individuals who might not otherwise have access to those goods and their capabilities.” For more than 35 years, Good360 has helped transform lives by partnering with socially responsible companies to keep overstocked, returned, and seasonal products out of landfills and to give those items a second life in the hands of people in need.

The Arizona Technology Council Supports Governor Doug Ducey’s 20×2020 Proposal for Increased Education Funding

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 22 aprile 2018

The Arizona Technology Council, the state’s largest trade association for technology businesses and a longtime leader of the technology community, today reinforced its full support for Governor Doug Ducey’s plan to continue investments in Arizona’s K-12 education. Dubbed “20×2020,” this initiative proposes to increase teacher salaries 20 percent by the beginning of the 2020 school year, with 10 percent coming this year. In addition, the plan calls to fully restore $271 million of recession-era cuts over the next five years, with $100 million coming this year — all without raising taxes while maintaining Arizona’s balanced budget.“The lack of skilled talent needed to meet demand continues to be a top challenge and barrier to business growth for Council members,” said Steven G. Zylstra, president and CEO, Arizona Technology Council. “Supporting our K-12 teachers is paramount to meeting this challenge, and that’s why working to pass Governor Ducey’s 20×2020 proposal will be a top priority for the Arizona Technology Council.” This plan also builds on the Governor’s proposal to invest $371 million in District Additional Assistance and Charter Additional Assistance, which would be phased in over the next five years. An initial investment of $100 million would be made in FY2019. These dollars provide flexibility to school districts for investment in resources, including fixing school infrastructure, modernizing curriculum, school buses and updating classroom technologies.

Modern maritime technologies: do we have the skills?

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 28 febbraio 2018

Like everywhere else, world digitalization, high-tech equipment and low-carbon solutions are affecting the workplace of the maritime world. Preparing the workforce for such trends is crucial to ensure a competitive European maritime sector. But what will be the profiles needed for the jobs of tomorrow? How can we make sure that people are strongly qualified for the many attractive and high quality jobs European seas have to offer?
To address these questions the Commission has launched, as part of the New Skills Agenda, a new cooperation platform between several key stakeholders called Blueprint for skills cooperation.
For the maritime technology sector, the Spanish Foundation CETMAR is in charge of leading the EU partnership composed of 17 partners who today have met in Brussels to kick-off the work. Composed of both educational and industrial representatives, the partnership will explore the skills required by modern maritime technologies and the possible ways to match future demand and supply. They will conceive the profiles and curricula of tomorrow and propose concrete actions to be rolled out at national and regional level to bridge the gap between the training offer and the actual needs of the industry. By helping the sector to adapt the education to prepare the future workforce, this initiative seeks to empower the various strands of the maritime industry and boost its performance for years to come.
