New, Inclusive Pathways for Career Success in Tech
Over the past decade, Miami-Dade has experienced an unprecedented 82% growth in tech related career and workforce opportunities. Despite this explosive growth, diversity remains a challenge with only 7-8% of tech related jobs being filled by Black or Hispanic employees. With an average salary surpassing $90k per year, this influx of new opportunities represents a huge opportunity for underrepresented talent across our city - raising up our communities and cementing Miami's place in the tech ecosystem globally.
Miami Connected will create a fund, advised by a diverse of community leaders, that will direct resources to projects and initiatives that increase access, equity, inclusion, and workforce opportunities in tech, with a focus on efforts led by and in service of marginalized groups. Stay tuned for future updates on this important work.
