In Focus | Capital CoLAB

What if there were a certification—a kind of “digital badge”—that would let top employers know that the recipient has the skills to succeed in their technologically advanced businesses? Actually, as it turns out, there is such a certification, which is sponsored by Capital CoLAB in collaboration with several universities in the National Capital Region. Here, Trey Sullivan, Assistant Dean for Georgetown’s Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies, talks with Tasha Washington, Capital CoLAB’s Student Engagement Associate, about the partnership’s Digital Technology Credential program. “We work together to develop the talent needed for the jobs of today and tomorrow,” Washington said. “Our region has great diversity, tremendous assets, and vast potential, and we really want to keep that talent here in the region.”

April is Capital CoLAB’s annual Credential Month and they’ll be hosting free events and activities. If you would like to learn more about the Capital CoLAB partnership, please email
