Last year, only 45 African American students took the Computer Science AP exam in California, a state known for being a hub of innovation. Hear from the White House and Level Playing Field Institute about innovative ways people are broadening the talent base in the technology industry and how you or your company can participate.
The President is committed to encouraging the entrepreneurial spirit in our country, starting with setting a goal of 1 million additional Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) graduates over the next decade. Diversity has been one of the greatest strengths of our nation; for the U.S. to remain competitive globally we must broaden the talent base in the technology industry.
That’s why the White House has issued a call to tech innovators to work together to ensure that all youth have the opportunity to participate in the technology sector, particularly those from underserved and historically underrepresented communities including women and girls.
