Northern Louisiana’s Technology Corridor: Paving the Way for Excellence

With an eye squarely on high-tech innovation and research, the joint venture between GDIT and Louisiana would generate 800 jobs for technology professionals. Its success led to the opening of a second facility in Northwest Louisiana: the Customer Engagement Center.

Within five years, we had created more than 1,000 jobs in Northern Louisiana and a highly skilled workforce, many of them veterans. Since its inception, GDIT has actively recruited top talent from nearby Barksdale Air Force Base—bringing the total of the ITCs’ former-military workforce to nearly thirty percent.

Today, GDIT and the state of Louisiana are focused on the future: working with higher-education institutions like Louisiana Tech University, Bossier Parish Community College, Northwestern State University, Grambling State University, and Louisiana State University-Shreveport to align curricula with industry needs and meet client future demands. Together, we’re making sure students are job-ready upon graduation, and helping the state retain its best and brightest.

Northern Louisiana’s Technology Corridor has established a strategic, state-of-the-art technology region where industry, academia, and government converge to collaborate and evolve technology.

Not only do Louisiana and GDIT benefit, but the United States as a whole.
