Hola and Hello,
On Monday, September 4th, the U.S. celebrated Labor Day, a federal holiday originally created to honor workers as part of the American organized labor movement. In recognition of this celebration, I'm using this edition of the Austin Urban Technology Movement (AUTMHQ) newsletter to honor our AUTMHQ staff . Without them, none of the important work we do in the movement towards a diverse and equitable technology ecosystem would be possible. Thank you AUTMHQ team for keeping our Movement moving forward. And to everyone laboring in the tech ecosystem, remember that we all have a part to play in creating a tech ecosystem for all. Sincerely, Michael Ward, Jr. AUTMHQ President and CEO
