According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, African Americans make up less than five percent of the technology industry's workforce in Silicon Valley. According to the commission, the percentage of African Americans who occupy executive positions may be as low as one percent. And independent entrepreneurs have it just as bad as those already established in the sector.
InnoPower's Black Talent development approach focuses on eliminating African-Americans' historical barriers to accessing a career in technology fields. By partnering with Eleven Fifty Academy, our Advancing Tech in Indiana initiative is 100% dedicated to skilling up individuals from diverse backgrounds, reducing barriers to entry for technology careers in web development, cybersecurity, application development, and UX/UI. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts a job growth rate of 22% for software developers this decade compared with 4% for other occupations. The Academy has a high placement rate with an average salary of over $55,000
