Black History Month is an Opportunity to Celebrate and Honor Diversity in Tech | Empowering a new generation of “hidden figures"
Black History Month is an opportunity to celebrate the countless contributions this community has made in the tech industry and the U.S. See how technology companies are highlighting their contributions and working to build a more diverse workforce.
Also, read TechNet's op-ed honoring NASA's Katherine Johnson, a heroic woman born in rural West Virginia who overcame segregation and whose mathematical genius paved the way for U.S. supremacy in space, science, and technology. As we remember Johnson’s extraordinary life, we as a nation should also commit ourselves to building on her legacy by empowering a new generation of “hidden figures” to lead us into the future.
