Diversity makes tech better. But numbers show there’s a lot of work to do. The need for technical roles continues to grow and is expected to reach 1.4 million in 2020, yet diversity of tech workers is lacking (1). As the industry of the future, the tech sector has a duty to ensure that equality and opportunity is available to everyone, regardless of background. It is our hope that this program will help more diverse talents enter and flourish in tech and support equal opportunities in the fastest growing sector of our economy.
