Diversity in Tech: Diversifying Tech is crucial to its Continued Success
Diversifying tech is crucial to its success and continued growth in the United States. According to The Bureau of Labor Statistics, in just two years there will be 1.4 million open tech related jobs and only 400,000 qualified candidates!
As technology use continues to grow, the number of technology related jobs will grow as well. A more diverse workforce leads to higher revenues for corporations and small businesses. Ramping up diversity efforts in the Tech industry could result in $400 billion more revenue per year (TechRepublic 02/2018).
Our panel of industry professionals will provide insight and discuss the competitive advantage opportunities of being diverse and inclusive in the tech sector.
