“By engaging with Multiverse, we are not merely addressing our talent needs; we are actively shaping the future of healthcare by investing in individuals who embody the skills and mindset required for the digital age.” – Brian Aquart, Vice President of Workforce and Community Education, Northwell Health
With Multiverse, Northwell Health partnered with InTulsa, a local nonprofit, to pilot an apprenticeship program in Tulsa, Oklahoma, offering full-time positions in software engineering and data management.
The result? Northwell Health was able to match diverse talent to high-quality jobs, cultivate technical skills for apprentices and foster a workplace for all, serving as a catalyst for positive change within the organization and across the healthcare sector.
“inTulsa was thrilled to pilot this apprenticeship effort in Tulsa alongside Multiverse. Our team received an incredible reception from candidates and companies alike. As inTulsa matches diverse talent to high-quality jobs, we were proud to engage hundreds of interested Tulsa candidates in the Multiverse application process. The placements at Northwell Health serve as a fantastic model for our community: increasing remote and local job tech-based opportunities for our most deserving Tulsans.” - Aaron Miller, led this project at inTulsa and now serves as Head of National Partnerships at Tulsa Community Foundation
Dren LaPhayne, a current Northwell Health apprentice, discovered the program after completing Mutliverse’s tech bootcamp. After eight years of taking college courses on and off and ultimately realizing the college system wasn’t a fit for her learning style, Dren successfully pivoted her career to data analytics. In her current role, she is working on bridging a knowledge gap between two separate systems through data storytelling and benefiting from a diverse, flexible and versatile program that allows her to learn through on-the-job training.
“By providing non-graduates with the opportunity to excel in critical tech roles, we are breaking down barriers, opening doors, and contributing to a more equitable future.” – Brian Aquart, Vice President of Workforce and Community Education, Northwell Health
