Diversifying the Tech Industry: Breaking the Barrier and Making Your Impact (NY Public Library)
Diversifying the Tech Industry – Breaking the Barrier and Making Your Impact
Join us for a robust conversation celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month!
The New York Public Library’s Career Services Office celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) with a series of webinars, that will explore various topics that focus on topics that impact the LatinX community such as professional development, cultural challenges at work, diversifying the workforce, and more.
Technology companies are the catalyst for dramatic change across all industries and sectors, however there is a need to narrow the persistent diversity gap to include people from immigrant backgrounds and communities of color, as well as women. During this session, we will discuss the importance and impact of diversifying the tech industry, factors that contribute to the digital divide, and key skills needed to be considered a qualified candidate.
