The global technology industry needs more talent. According to research by Korn Ferry, by 2030, the skilled labor shortage in tech could grow to 4.3 million workers. To serve tomorrow’s customers well, we need more students studying STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) today — students of all genders and backgrounds. We can’t fill our talent pipeline without closing the diversity gap.
As the composition of the workforce changes, companies embracing diversity and inclusion are experiencing greater innovation, productivity, engagement and employee satisfaction — along with better business performance. This coincides with a tremendous shift in buying power that mirrors changes in the workforce: women and underrepresented minorities have more economic influence than ever.
