Technology is one of the fastest-growing industries across the United States. With over 12 million workers and an average salary above $125,000, technology is the third-largest sector in the U.S. economy.* However, Black and Hispanic communities are unable to benefit from the rapid growth of tech jobs due to a lack of exposure, training, and experience.
To combat these trends, Austin Urban Technology Movement (AUTMHQ) focuses on job placement, career development, and networking opportunities to increase diversity in tech and eliminate the skills gap across the industry.
