Technology industry still faces uphill battle with diversity
from The Daily Texan
In the Spredfast office, employees work diligently at their desks, coding for their clients. At his desk, UT alumnus Al Hughes looks around — he is the only black person in the office. This is the norm. Hughes is a creative technologist for Spredfast, a social marketing firm in downtown Austin. Hughes said not seeing people of his same race around him at work is the biggest challenge he faces in the industry. To Hughes, the lack of diversity actually means a lack of diverse thinking.
