The Solution

Cultivating a fluent community of diverse experts across technology, entrepreneurship, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and community impact.

  • Allow entities to showcase their competitive advantage, meaningful partnerships, and current initiatives to students, learners, and industry experts, within Austin and across the globe.

  • Go beyond a typical conference and facilitate robust conversations in a curated environment over panel discussions, breakout rooms, networking opportunities, and a lunch and closing mixer, if in person, to amplify the impact.

  • Work with institutions, organizations, companies, and governmental agencies to ensure there are measurable results and outlined next steps to uplift our community.

The Problem

Texas has over 1,000,000 unfilled jobs available across the state, with more than 50% of new jobs being added in STEM.

Austin has one of the largest racial wealth divides in America, where Blacks and Hispanics make approximately $30,000 less than their Caucasian and Asian counterparts in median income.

The cost of living in Texas is 119.3 compared to 93.9 in Texas statewide and 100 nationally.
