AIM Institute’s Board of Directors announced that after 30 years of fortifying the region’s tech workforce and advancing educational opportunities for individuals in technology, Dr. Kandace Miller will transition from her distinguished leadership role as AIM Institute’s President and CEO. The board is conducting a national search for a successor.
Dr. Miller engineered AIM’s original organizational model as a computer programming training service and transformed it into a resource for thousands. AIM has removed barriers to tech education by providing free training programs, engaging underserved communities and increasing access to the tech career continuum.
“It’s been an honor to serve alongside leaders and service providers committed to growing the tech community,” Dr. Miller said. “I’d like to express gratitude to the Board of Directors, the AIM staff and community partners, donors and foundations.”
Her stewardship resulted in AIM’s emergence as a difference-maker across the region. AIM has:
● Helped 250,000 individuals improve their tech skills and find jobs;
● Raised more than $59 million in grant funds;
● Helped more than 25 million job seekers apply for new careers via CareerLink;
● Served 142,000 youth with engaging and interactive initiatives;
● Hosted more than 16,000 individuals at AIM events.
“Kandace’s impact is incalculable,” said Ashok Fichadia, AIM’s Board of Directors chair and Assistant VP of IT Development for Union Pacific. “She’s cultivated an atmosphere of cooperation, affinity and creativity, driving all at AIM to succeed, particularly women and minorities who are underrepresented in the tech industry.”
Dr. Miller will continue to consult with AIM in an Emeritus role and work closely with the leadership team to ensure a seamless transition. A search firm has been hired to identify candidates for the President/CEO position. Please refer qualified candidates to Mike English with The Moran Company (email@example.com).
