AUSTIN, TX, April 14, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — The tech industry is extremely diverse in innovation and invention, however those working in the industry are not representative of the whole population. Marginalized groups such as Women, Black, Latinx, or Indigenous professionals and even less self-identified as LGBTQA+ are still greatly underrepresented. Virtasant, a cloud technology company that specializes in helping organizations leverage the power of public cloud platforms, is fully committed to diversity & inclusion since it was established. As one of the world’s largest fully-remote organizations, with a global network of over 4,000 professionals in 130 countries, their diverse teams work together across multiple time zones and represent various walks of life, bringing together a community of extraordinary and empowered people.
In order to provide these underrepresented youth with the education they deserve, Virtasant has launched its second scholarship, Future Leaders in Technology. “At Virtasant, we understand the need to embrace fresh perspectives. The goal of this scholarship is to provide opportunity and access for these young innovative minds and help ensure their future success,” stated Michael Kearns, CEO of Virtasant.
