Tech Diversity Week is dedicated to bringing together a diverse set of individuals within the technology industry to celebrate and advance diversity in the tech field. Over a three day period of events including panels and award ceremonies, participants will have access to key individuals in the tech industry. The occasion will serve as an opportunity to bring the brightest minds in tech together and allow them to bounce ideas off one another concerning the intersection of STEM, diversity and inclusion through Tech Talks.
According to a study conducted by Forbes, Austin has become the fastest growing city for tech growth. STEM jobs are being created and major funding is being swept into startups like Mozido and Spiceworks. Austin supports a community, with all of its eccentricities, that is a natural reservoir for top tech talent.
Home to many of the world’s top technology companies – Google, Facebook, Apple – no place on Earth represents the tech scene like Silicon Valley, the moniker itself speaking to all the high tech organizations residing in the region. Accounting for one-third of all venture capital investment in the nation, Silicon Valley’s startup culture serves the dreams of budding entrepreneurs.
We knew from the very beginning Tech Diversity Week had to be closely tied to these two flourishing communities. – Dennis Kennedy, Founder & Chairman
