Tech Startup Roundtable
The Diversity in the Tech Sector Working Group of the FCC’s Advisory Committee on Diversity and Digital Empowerment (ACDDE) co-hosted this virtual event along with the FCC’s Media Bureau. The event was held virtually and was open to the public on the Internet via live feed from the FCC’s web page at www.fcc.gov/live and on the FCC’s YouTube channel.
The roundtable featured Minority, Women, and Small Business (MWS) Tech Entrepreneurship Support Organizations that facilitate entrepreneurship in their local cities. Within certain cities, these organizations have become “tech anchor institutions” for conversations, funding, and policies regarding the building of local, inclusive tech ecosystems, and the development of both diverse tech founders and worker pipelines.
The roundtable highlighted best practices of industry leaders in training and employment diversity in the tech field. It featured three structured discussions to share how MWS Tech Entrepreneurship Support Organizations are rapidly becoming economic cornerstones for minority communities, thereby expanding workforce training and employment opportunities in underserved communities.
