Rev. Jesse Jackson PUSHTech2020 Summit

Brian Arellanes and Walter Jones attended the PUSHTech2020 Summit Wednesday May 6th in San Francisco and got to meet the Rev. Jesse Jackson.  The Rev. Jackson and his Rainbow Push organization were holding a summit to pressure tech companies into hiring and promoting more minorities and women.  ITSourceTEK is working alongside the RainbowPush and Rev. Jesse Jackson, the Silicon Valley Black Chamber of Commerce, HP and other tech industry leaders to expand minority inclusion into the tech space.

As an MBE, ITSourceTEK believes it is essential to walk the walk in support of diversity in the workplace.  From 2012-2014 when it comes to providing opportunities for other minorities, ITSourceTEK has hired 177 employees creating jobs for 83 minorities (46.9%).  ITSourceTEK also spent over 83% of total corporate spend with other MBE diverse suppliers.

We are committed to this cause and are challenging other tech companies to do the same.
