The Most Diverse Tech Hub initiative began in November 2020, when, determined for Philly to become the most diverse tech hub in the nation, the City of Philadelphia’s Department of Commerce awarded $500,000 across a handful of organizations working to boost tech skills for the future talent pipeline, with a focus on Black and brown Philadelphians.
