NECESSARY INCLUSION

Information Technology is the lifeblood of every company. Over one million tech jobs are being created by U.S. corporations each year, but there are not enough talented people to fill those openings. Despite increased emphasis in schools on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), women and people of color are not participating in or inventing technology. Without them, these pipeline challenges will persist. Necessary Inclusion: Embracing the Changing Faces of Technology is the one book that not only breaks down the challenges into digestible bites, it also provides a road map to solving this ever-expanding problem.

Thought leader and entrepreneur Avis Yates Rivers established her own successful technology company more than three decades ago. Her story shines a spotlight on the importance of strategic mentoring, education, and goal orientation. She is a highly sought-after speaker on the subjects of race, gender and the need to embrace the changing faces of technology. Avis is a long-time advocate for the increased utilization of minority and women-owned businesses, and a change agent for increasing the meaningful participation of women and people of color in technology. She serves as a director on the boards of a select group of non-profit organizations, and is the National Spokesperson for NCWIT’s “Sit With Me” Campaign.

Why are there not more women developing technology?

Necessary Inclusion, Avis Yates Rivers' journey of understanding the changing landscape of women in leadership and technology seen through her eyes as a CEO, Thought Leader and Technology Pioneer. 

Women, and especially women of color, are essentially “absent” from inventing technology.

Today, only 19 percent of all software developers are female.

Studies have shown that including women in work teams raises the collective intelligence of the group.

It’s not enough to just add women and people of color to the tech workforce. It’s imperative to actively ensure they assume positions of leadership and engage in ever increasing decision making.

Providing access and opportunities for women and people of color to participate in the growing tech industry was similar to every other civil rights struggle of the past.

We must begin to educate our young people in computer science at an earlier age to begin to build the healthy, robust pipeline of future workers the American economy needs today and will increasingly need in the future.
