I am writing to ask you to consider becoming part of the Driving Diversity in Technology working group at CompTIA.
It is a well-known fact that organizations that embrace a diverse workforce make better business decisions and are more successful than those that don’t. This working group has recently formed to prepare and support minority individuals in closing the diversity gap in tech organizations by providing the tools and resources needed for a successful career in technology. We are working hard to make a difference, and the first step is to become a full-fledged CompTIA community.
There are three important ways you can help: 1) consider becoming a community champion, 2) join our LinkedIn Group to stay abreast of our developments, and 3) refer and invite a colleague to join our efforts.
Becoming a Community Champion. Community champions help with the formation stage of the community by establishing our purpose and building a first-year plan. Champions are expected to contribute 2-3 hours of their time monthly during the community formation phase, and participate in and promote the community when it launches. If you are interested in becoming a community champion, please send a bio and headshot to Justin Valentine at Justin.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Joining our LinkedIn Group. Even if you are not ready to commit to becoming a community champion, you can still support and follow our efforts by joining our Driving Diversity in Technology LinkedIn group, here: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/11900601
Refer and Invite a Colleague. Feel free to pass this post on to a like-minded individual you know who would like to support our efforts to drive diversity in IT.
