Tech skills are in demand. Limited supply drives up wages and encourages investment. The moral imperative of reducing the obstacles to economic gains and the business imperative for more trained workers are both contributing to renewed and sustained focus on diversifying the technical workforce. This effort is taking place at the global, national, regional and company level. For more than 10 years, Technical.ly has reported on economic growth and access to that growth in local tech economies. This resource guide serves as a starting point for individual company hiring managers and for policymakers and economic development executives.
This project was produced thanks to support from the Most Diverse Tech Hub Initiative from the City of Philadelphia Department of Commerce’s Tech Industry Partnership. Its lessons are universal. Download the toolkit, review additional resources below and contact Technical.ly to learn more.
