HACEMOS Promotes High-Tech Careers for Hispanics

Hispanic Students in the United States and Puerto Rico.

On February 28, an event was celebrated which unfortunately doesn’t receive the same advertising or importance of other events on the yearly calendar. I’m talking about National High Technology Day. This is an annual celebration, and this year it was celebrated across 32 cities in the United States and Puerto Rico with a turnout of more than 2,200 students for this 15th edition.

Several Hispanic students take part in this annual celebration organized by AT&T and Group HACEMOS, who offer support and resources to create strong communities by promoting education.

HACEMOS is a group of Hispanic and Latino workers from AT&T, a leader in the sector, with more than 8,400 members in the United States and Puerto Rico. The group’s mission is to form more solid communities by providing positive models to follow and demonstrating the importance of education to be successful.

National High Technology Day is designed to educate students about the diverse opportunities available in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, areas in which people of Latino background, as well as other minorities, have historically been underrepresented.

This type of promotion helps many young people to be able to determine what technological options might be of interest for their professional development. It would be interesting and, indeed, yield better results if it were expanded to the rest of the region, since clearly the benefit goes to the participants that are in the mentioned territory.
