A 2020 study found that while women overall comprise 28.8% of the US tech workforce, Latine hold a mere 2% of jobs in STEM. This abysmal statistic disproves the argument of meritocracy in technology.
Companies that prioritize diversifying their teams by recruiting Latine will see growth in innovation and product development.
Watch this Catalyst webinar in celebration of Latin Heritage Month. We explore how Latine women are changing the tech landscape and how recruiting them leads to growth in innovation and product development. This webinar showcases expert insights on:
- Innovative solutions for busting workplace barriers faced by Latine Women.
- Finding role models and mentors with similar backgrounds and overcoming the challenges of navigating the complexities of unconscious bias.
- Best-in-class programs for recruitment, engagement, and retention of Latine women.
- Fostering opportunities for growth through strong networks and building a sense of belonging.
