“Investing in Tucson is an investment in the world,” says Arizona Technology Council VP Karla Morales. “Both those who grow up here and those that come to pursue an education go on to work and live all over the globe—setting the tone for how Tucson is seen at a global level. The better we are a community, the more attractive we will be to businesses to come in and bring jobs with them.”
Diversity in STEM
The inclusion of more women in tech is not only the right decision from an equality of opportunity standpoint – it’s the smart one. The more women in Arizona’s tech sector, the better. Strong gender diversity empowers companies to boost their success, handle crises better, and bring innovative ideas and results-driven attitudes that benefit us all.
