Jose Marquez. CEO, TechLatino

For over 20 years now, TechLatino has been laser focused on the development of next generation tech professionals, we see there isn’t a lack of a talent pipeline, it’s a lack of opportunity specifically as it pertains to STEM/ We need to see more opportunity for our communities. There is a lack of diversity and inclusion in the technology field. However, it has become clear that increasing the amount of Latinos in technology is not only a necessity but good business. We must increase the numbers of Latinos and African American tech professionals across the country and assure the increase in diverse hires by these companies.  We must continue to encourage our visionary partners in the technology space to hire @TechLatino. This Emerging Tech Leaders’ Summit will empower the next generation of Latinos in tech careers by giving them focused field of study.  We must hire @TechLatino and our communities who for years have been left behind. We must bring the blue collar worker and transform them into New Collar Individuals, from wherever they come from in the U.S.  – let’s educate, train, and hire from everywhere! There is not talent deficit, but an opportunity deficit.
