Catalyze Tech: Google, Apple and other companies together for diversity in the tech sector
Some of the leading Silicon Valley tech companies, including Google and Apple, give birth to Catalyze Tech. It is a new coalition that aims at increase the representation of minorities in various Silicon Valley companies. The coalition was born also thanks to the push ofAction to Catalyze Tech Report which analyzed the state of the tech industry on issues such as diversity, equity and inclusion.
Catalyze Tech is born: the goal is to support diversity in the tech world
The new coalition aims to define solutions to increase diversity, equity and inclusion in the tech industry. The project is based onAction to Catalyze Tech Report (available entirely online via the website actreport.com) which offers a snapshot of the state of the tech industry on these issues. It should be noted that Catalyze Tech will be present at the first DEI Innovation Summit, scheduled for next November 3rd. The event will bring together CEOs and executives of the signatory companies as well as DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) experts to discuss actions to be put into practice in the near future.
