Rapid growth among a number of racial and ethnic groups means the nation is becoming more diverse more quickly than expected. The data shows that as the country grows, its racial makeup is changing. In an increasing number of places, no individual race constitutes a large majority of the population. Ensuring a sufficient supply of workers with the appropriate skills and credentials and addressing the lack of diversity among high-tech workers have become central public policy concerns. This presentation seeks to shed some light on the imperative of preparing a diverse talent pipeline in the broader FinTech industry. Specifically, the speaker elaborates on the essential role that higher education plays in preparing the diverse workforce that represents diverse demography. The presentation focuses on innovative and successful strategies to engage HBCUs in building capacity and developing talent in all areas of FinTech. The speaker discusses efforts that lead to the creation of the largest network of HBCUs that are engaged in FinTech research and education across the nation.
