Changing the Face of Diversity in Tech: Our CBC Tech 2020 African American Inclusion Plan

Diversity — of thought, of ethnicity, of gender, of sexual orientation — any way you define it, it’s an essential piece of shaping ideas that can impact the world in meaningful ways. In the world of technology, it’s common knowledge that we don’t have enough of it. Underrepresentation of minorities and women has run rampant within the tech industry for decades, and though companies have continued to discuss the issue, creating new roles to address disappointing hiring statistics, the problem still persists. At TaskRabbit, the importance of diversity and inclusion has been a part of our DNA since day one, with a workforce that’s 58% female, 11% African American, 5% Latino, 11% Asian, and 11% LGBTQ. Even so, we know there is so much more to do. We always have to ask ourselves what doing more truly looks like. How can we address these issues in a way that moves the needle and exposes our team, and the industry, to more of our best and brightest minds? Today, we’re proud to present our African American …
