Tech Latino 2030
Legislative Forum 
BDPA members attended the annual Tech Latino 2030 Legislative Forum in Washington, D.C. last week. Hosted by LISTA (Latinos in Information Sciences and Technology Association),  BDPA's industry partner leverages this powerful forum to help accomplish its mission and achieve its advocacy goals and objectives on Capitol Hill. During last week's White House briefing, talking points included: STEM workforce development, small business legislative initiatives, closing greater health IT "digital divides", and funding community-based STEM programs with minority institutions. The White House seeks STEM 'pockets of excellence' ideas on how we can grow them to scale. 
      Latinos in Information Sciences and Technology Association is a national organization geared toward the advancement and development of Hispanics in the information sciences, technology, and the telecommunications industry. LISTA encourages technical professionals to achieve educational excellence, economic opportunity and social equity to empower communities through the use of technology to bridge the digital divide and help end poverty in less fortunate communities.
