Techquity: Unlocking Economic Opportunity By Removing The Digital Divide
Between last December and March 2021, there was a steady decline in the unemployment rate for white workers, from 6% in December to 5.4% in March. While Black men saw their rate drop moderately from 9.9% to 9.6%, Black women actually experienced an increase in unemployment from 8.4% in December to 8.7% in March.
Amidst these economic challenges, we have seen an unprecedented level of commitment to racial justice and equity from a diverse range of stakeholders. This includes the tech industry, where HP and other companies have pledged to change the way they approach racial equity within the digital economy.
