Laptops For Latinas.

How Can Your Unused Laptop Give a Young Latina Access to Technology

As it is today, one in three Latina households don’t have technology access ...

Latinas are significantly underrepresented in the computing industry. Jobs in technology are one of the fastest growing industries and a skills gap has created a high demand for workers with these skills.

The predictable future is that Latinas will continue to not join the computing workforce and therefore will miss out on the greatest economic opportunity that exists in this country. This opportunity is enlarged given the increased demand for diverse tech workers from corporations and the profound demographic shift that is taking place in the United States.
