WELCOME TO RITE
Information Technology jobs span industry sectors and by all reports are one of the most in demand in the country. The same holds true for Northeast Ohio. Unfortunately, the talent supply needed by regional employers – large and small, producers and consumers of IT alike – is lagging.

Today, RITE is an award-winning model of an industry-led collaborative focused on talent development initiatives.
