ReThink Austin 2021

The Problem

Austin, TX has one of the country's widest racial wealth disparities. With gentrification on the rise and a skills gap in technology widening, ReThink Austin "re-thinks" the city's trajectory, preventing a further divide between the educated and uneducated, the experienced and inexperienced, and the haves and have-nots.

The spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in 2020 exacerbated inequities across Central Texas, emphasizing the importance of an equitable solution.

The Solution

Create a fluent community of diverse individuals working to overcome societal barriers.

Connect organizations from various industries in order to share expertise, initiatives, and resources that promote entrepreneurship, technology, DEI, and community impact.

Create a knowledge-sharing environment by hosting impactful panel discussions, fireside chats, interactive sessions, and networking opportunities.

ReThink Austin

Creating a fluent community of diverse individuals across the realms of entrepreneurship, technology, DEI, and community impact to break down societal barriers.

 

This event also contributes to AUTMHQ's awareness-to-employment pipeline, which aims to increase diversity in technology while also creating an ecosystem to close the wealth gap.

Join the movement and contribute to the solution. This is just the beginning!

Phenomenal Women Panel at ReThink Austin 2022

This panel, which was moderated by Paty Sesma, VP of MarCom at AUTMHQ, provided an excellent opportunity to share the stories of accomplished women in technology. We had a really fascinating and informative conversation about the challenges that women face in the workplace or as entrepreneurs. We talked about Impostor Syndrome and, of course, the significant achievements of our panelists, Taisha Dotson, Melinda Garvey, Muna Hussaini, and Mercedes Ballard. This was such an uplifting discussion. ---------------------------- Want to break into tech and change the world? Join the AUTMHQ movement by Liking, Commenting, and Subscribing!
