PHL: Most Diverse Tech Hub

In November 2020, the City of Philadelphia’s Department of Commerce awarded $500,000 across a handful of organizations for its PHL: Most Diverse Tech Hub initiative. The three-part initiative seeks to boost tech skills for the future talent pipeline — specifically Black and brown Philadelphians looking to move into technology careers.

For its part in this funded initiative, Technically Media is managing the Philadelphia Tech Industry Partnership, through which it is convening technology employers to identify sector and talent needs with workforce diversity at top of mind, and building the network of employer partners. These partners should be committed to providing internships, on-the-job training, unsubsidized employment and targeted mentoring.

The articles appearing here are also a part of the PHL: Most Diverse Tech Hub initiative. They were independently reported and not reviewed by other partners.
