2021 IO Expo

The IO Expo is a chance for prospective applicants from our partner districts and referral organizations and employers committed to our upcoming cohort to meet one another and begin establishing good fit prior to the application window opening. The 2021 IO Expo will be held on November 18, 2021, at the Scott Conference Center from 9am to 2pm.


*COVID UPDATE: We are monitoring the situation closely but, at present, are still moving forward with the event with a dedication to high safety standards.*

Employer INformation

Employers: Spots at the IO Expo are reserved for those employers who have committed to hosting an internship for IO Cohort 4 (set to kick off in June 2022).
