On Friday, March 22nd, we'll be chatting with LMHQ member Kenneth Walker, Senior Vice President of Core Mission Support at Per Scholas, a nonprofit dedicated to providing free IT job training to Americans in cities where it is needed most. Ken provides thought leadership in marketing, talent, operations, IT, development and finance to help Per Scholas advance as a resilient and sustainable organization across its seven national sites. With 20+ years of sales and business development experience in the IT sector, Ken joined Per Scholas in 2005 after a career as a for-profit executive at companies like IBM and AllBusiness. Today, 85% of Per Scholas students graduate from accelerated, tuition-free full-time training - and at least 80% of graduates find jobs paying an average of $21.49 per hour.
