Austin's technology sector is a key part of the region's economy and of the city's identity. Statistically speaking, it is also one of the least diverse sectors of our economy.

When everyone in your executive and product development teams looks and thinks the same way, you might miss out on key points of view that could have led to better products and services being delivered.
As the region's tech sector deals with the issue, the Austin American-Statesman and its technology website, www.512tech.com, will explore the various issues through our ongoing series,"Hacking Diversity."
