Encouraging diversity in tech by supporting today's untapped talent
from The Hill
Tech innovation is flourishing in America. Yet for all of the innovation and growth this tech boom has brought, women and minorities are too often on the outside looking in. This needs to change. According to the National Center for Women and Information Technology, 1.4 million computer science job openings are expected to be offered by 2018. However, just three percent of these jobs will be filled by women. Despite these statistics, diverse talent is out there, but we need to identify how to tap into it more effectively. What is too often missing are the tools and exposure necessary to develop and transform passion into workforce skills.
