OpenTech is a targeted, localized approach to skills training and employment placement for disadvantaged and under-represented communities in technology fields. Our model coordinates between the ongoing hiring needs of employers and educational programs offering targeted skills development. Our impact is to move groups of diverse individuals into technology-focused careers. These individuals broaden the diversity of their employer organizations and serve as a strong example of opportunity realized for their communities. As OpenTech advances over time we see building links between companies and communities as one of our most important goals, and by doing so, showing how different stakeholder groups can share in the success of US high technology industries.
