Press Release

February 18, 2021 /3BL Media/ - A departure from “business as usual” is critical to rethink and reimagine long-standing, enduring challenges of inequality and exclusion.

During Black History Month, T‑Mobile Launches Programs Focused on Driving Opportunity for Students, Tech Workers and Business Owners

The Un-carrier continues its commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion by kicking off a $2 million investment in new scholarship, recruiting and business education programs
Summary: 

What’s the news: Inspired by advocates who created pathways to prosperity for Black Americans, T-Mobile is announcing three new programs that will give students, tech professionals and business owners access to valuable financial, educational and career-development resources: Magenta Scholars, the NextTech Diversity Program and Magenta Edge.

Why it matters: Change happens when everyone has equitable access to resources, and these three programs will provide just that for Black Americans. Stats tell the story of opportunity: Students with financial support graduate at twice the rate of Black students overall. Black workers with access to career training and resources can break barriers in a network-infrastructure workforce that currently is comprised of just 10% Black technicians. Black-owned businesses will benefit from access to free workshops and advice from experts, particularly as they have been twice as likely to close permanently than white-owned businesses because of the economic impacts of COVID-19.

Who it’s for: Students at historically Black colleges and universities, aspiring diverse workers in the tech and telecom industries and Black small business owners — and allies who support them.
