Report says diversity in tech will take generations
Mass Technology Leadership Council (MassTLC) will released a reports on the Massachusetts tech economy entitled, Tech Industry Transformation: Platform Ecosystems, Economic Models, and The Future of Work, benchmarking the state’s tech economy and highlighting key trends.
From the Boston Globe article:
For years the tech industry has cited a shortage of talent as its most pressing challenge. Yet despite widespread debate about the lack of diversity, and numerous initiatives in schools and special programs to introduce more women and minorities to technology careers, progress has been painfully slow: Only 29 percent of Massachusetts tech workers are nonwhite, and 24 percent are women, according to the council report.
The report, prepared for the council by the UMass Donahue Institute, calls broadly to “make inclusion a priority,” by having policy makers and employers set specific goals for diversity, share successful strategies, and hold themselves accountable.
