AUTMHQ's Impact

Initially, the primary goal of Austin Urban Technology Movement was to connect employers with candidates from the Black and Hispanic communities. We held events to help people find work and get into tech.

 

Along the way, AUTMHQ has transformed ideas about the delivery of workforce development. AUTMHQ is reshaping the technology industry and making its underrepresented groups a self-sustaining and long-lasting presence.
