A New America: Empowering Hispanic Millennials for Tech Leadership

September 18, 2014
Washington, DC, District of Columbia

By 2050, Latinos will comprise a third of the U.S. population and over a quarter of the millennial generation that will soon make up the majority of the workforce. Yet in spite of these projections, Hispanics continue to be underrepresented when it comes to in-demand STEM professions. What can we do to reverse this trend and advance Hispanic progress in STEM fields?

Taking place during the early days of Hispanic Heritage Month 2014, this National Journal and The Atlantic event convened experts on education and policy, as well as leaders in the Hispanic community, to spark dialogue around the social barriers to progress and the next steps toward making STEM careers fully accessible to Hispanic millennials.
