The workplace as we know it will change dramatically, and with it, the skills companies will require potential candidates to have.

The world was already changing rapidly and the global pandemic has accelerated it. For Black Americans to succeed in a post-Corona world, they will need to update, adapt, and develop the skills that make them competitive. One of the most promising ways to ensure you are ready for the post-COVID workplace is to acquire and sharpen your technology skills. Companies have used technology in transformative ways in the past six months. They expect their current and future employees to do the same. Pivot Tech is here to help historically disenfranchised individuals meet that expectation.

"Professionals with digital skills including coding, web development, and analytics already had a competitive edge in the industry before COVID," said Pivot Tech Co-Founder Quawn Clark, "Now it's even more critical to have those skills. People who can keep a digital business thriving during economic downturns are going to be prime candidates for employment."

"The fact is in Silicon Valley as a whole, Blacks and Hispanics make up only 3 percent to 6 percent of tech professionals, and women of color are 1 percent or less," said Co-Founder and President Joshua Mundy. "That is a sample of what is going on across the country in the industry. We founded Pivot Tech to change that."

Now more than ever, it is imperative that minorities are proactive about securing their career and gaining the skills that will make them more marketable in a society that is more technology-driven and technology-dependent that ever. Pivot Tech is enrolling now and scholarships are available. For more information, visit
