The Loop: Blacks can lead in tech in America just like we did in Wakanda

Urban Marketing Group Staff



The leader of the tech world is Princess Shuri! Well, at least in Wakanda she is…If you haven’t basked in the glory of Black Panther , this is a major spoiler alert, but the film is a huge step in the right direction for a conversation about black people in tech. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, black people make up for less than 5% of employees at the executive level in the tech industry. While diversity and inclusion is a layered conversation, we’ll be creating real opportunities for innovators to connect at TechConneXt this year in the Bay Area.

For Hispanic Consumers, a Different Digital Divide

Urban Marketing Group Staff



s digital marketers try to connect with a growing US Hispanic population, they will need to get past the outdated picture of a population languishing on the wrong side of a gaping “digital divide.” Thanks in part to smartphones, Hispanics have become a very digital cohort.

Hispanics were early adopters of smartphones. And though the population in general has caught up, smartphone penetration among Hispanics is a robust 69.1%, on par with that of black, white and Asian consumers.

Green Banks are capitalized with public funds which are then used to offer loans, leases, credit enhancements, and other financing services to close funding gaps for clean energy projects. By creating a Green Bank, DC will be able to accelerate the deployment of clean energy technology by removing upfront costs, leveraging private investment, and increasing the efficiency of public dollars.
