What we're about
While Hispanics represent the single greatest aspect of demographic growth in the United States, Hispanics participation in the occupations that fall into and involve traditional technical skills has lagged. This lack of Hispanic involvement has hurt innovation, put greater strain on the social network and damaged the fabric of the United States. The Hispanic Chamber of Metro Denver by launching Hispanics in Technology will address the under-representation in technology by creating a platform that is open but has an emphasis on Hispanics and how Hispanics can increase their participation in professions that are technology focused.
Mission Statement and Goals:
The Hispanic Chamber desires to create a platform that will be recognized as the hub for people wanting to invest into Hispanics and for Hispanics whose career emphasis center around technology. This will be accomplished by providing programs that will include:
•Provides its members the ability to learn from those who are making a difference in technology and other leaders in the Hispanic community
•Provides its partners to an avenue to further invest into the Hispanic Technology community by improving social capital and improving to this emerging workforce
•Create additional avenues to improve academic awareness and achievement for Hispanic youth to encourage careers in technology
