May 19, 2018 – Atlanta, Georgia – It’s no secret that there are many lucrative careers in need of skilled workers in the world of technology. The question is how does a woman, a minority, or member of an underrepresented community get their foot in the door? The good news is the 2018 Power of Tech Tour – Atlanta is here to help. The special event will be held at the Roam-Galleria, 3101 Cobb Pkwy, Suite 124 (2nd Floor) Atlanta, GA 30339 from 10 am-2 pm.
The event is hosted by Jamila Brown and Cameron Hairston, technology specialists, and co-founders of Virtue Technology and Cloud Tech Academy. These businesses are Atlanta based, and woman and minority-owned respectively. This event will demonstrate how women and minorities can become a valuable and needed part of the tech boom in true win-win fashion.
“The statistics regarding women and minorities in tech are alarmingly low, and since technology is the future, it is more important than ever to get involved in these high paying careers,” commented Brown. “Development of a high-tech workforce has long been a source of concern; it is a major growth sector that requires workers with specific skills. It is often believed that tech talent is in short supply among U.S. workers.”
The 2018 Power of Tech Tour- Atlanta showcases speakers who have had their lives transformed by entering the technology field. Business leaders will explore on the value of technology in the marketplace and discuss the benefits of having a more technologically skilled workforce.
