We are in pivotal time in history in which STEM occupations are projected to grow by 17.0 percent from 2008 to 2018, compared to 9.8 percent growth for non-STEM occupations. People of color have historically been excluded from economic, education, and job booms. Today Latinos make up only 5% and African Americans only 4% of the overall tech workforce. Technology shapes everyone’s lives all over the world and will only continue to expand, therefore everyone should have an opportunity to shape and create it. We want to make sure that people of color are not only included in the tech revolution, but are empowered to start their own social enterprises as well.
