ReThink Austin was created in 2019 to "rethink" the trajectory of the city and cultivate a diverse community across the realms of entrepreneurship, technology, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), and community impact.
Every quarter, ReThink Austin inspires collaboration in order to eliminate the racial, economic, social, and political divides that exist in our society.
ReThink Austin is for you, if you are interested in...
DIVERSITY, EQUITY, & INCLUSION
Austin, TX has one of the largest racial wealth divides in America. With gentrification expanding, a skills gap widening, and COVID-19 exposing the inequities throughout the city, ReThink Austin brings together like minded individuals to learn, strategize, and share relevant content across sectors.
ReThink Austin includes meaningful conversations about the future of our workforce, children, and our society. Let's go beyond talking about the issues and provide equitable steps to implement in our communities.
