Rainbow PUSH Premiers New Video: Changing the Face of Technology

At the 43rd Annual Rainbow PUSH Coalition conference, the organization premiered its new video, "Changing the Face of Technology."   Newly released workforce data indicates that African Americans and Latinos comprise just 1-4% of the workforce of numerous Silicon Valley companies.   "Companies and communities must face the change.   And we must change the face of technology.   The need is obvious.  We can do anything if we have the desire and the will.   We can and we must expand the participation of African Americans and people of color in this revolutionary world of technology.   We cannot be left behind," said Rev. Jackson.

 

Produced for the Rainbow PUSH Coalition by Carol H. Williams Advertising, the video can be found on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGeHq9qxpoM.
