Meet the Panelists

Joshua Carrierre sought to "break the mold" that was placed on those like him as a stereotype. He is currently serving as the Coordinator & Recruiter for the Information Technology Apprenticeship Program at Austin Community College. Joshua has been passionate about and fluent in technology since the age of 13. His passion lead to him wanting to help family and friends, which also became a passion for the community. Working at Child Protective Services for almost 5 years helped him understand why recruiting is important in many aspects of life, especially in the Technology World. As a person that is very interested in Afro-Futurism, the Internet of Things, and Artificial Intelligence, he is always looking to learn something new. 

Elizabeth Maze helps people find, get, and keep great jobs. They are a career coach and instructor for Career Services at Austin Community College. What they love about their program is the department's focus on increasing career equity in populations who face external barriers to employment. Maze has two master's degrees, one in English and one in TESOL - and a decade of experience teaching in intergenerational, multicultural classrooms. Maze also brings with them a lifelong love of theatre performance and uses those tools to help prepare people for "the performance" aspects of a job interview, including improvisation and confidence building.

Chris Stewart began his career in the United States Air Force Space Command managing communications computer systems at NORAD. In September 2000, he received his first City of Austin position and quickly progressed from a contributor to supervisor and eventually IT Manager for City Hall. He then moved to Austin Water as a Division Manager, then Utility Chief Information Officer. He was asked to fill the role of Chief Information Officer for the City of Austin in September of 2020 and accepted the position permanently in April 2021. 

Erin Johnson started her career in recruiting right here in Austin, Texas. Starting as the HR/Recruiting Intern at Kinnser Software (now Wellsky), Erin found her love and passion for recruiting. Since then, Erin has worked for healthcare and technology companies until ending up at ESO, which combined both. Starting as the first internal recruiter for ESO, Erin helped grow the business from 250 employees to now 600+. Erin now leads a global talent acquisition team hiring throughout the US, Canada, and Northern Ireland.
