In the last four years, Berkeley has solidified its position as a startup hub. Since 2014, there has been a 23% increase in jobs available in Berkeley startups.
The City of Berkeley's Office of Economic Development (OED) wants to set the right tone for growth by ensuring that all members of the community can benefit from these new jobs.
"As Berkeley becomes a more important tech hub, our goal is to create a foundation of inclusivity. Coordinating with Localwise and other community leaders working on tech diversity helps to dramatically accelerate our efforts in this arena."
- Jennifer Cogley, City of Berkeley’s OED For more details about the partnership between the City of Berkeley's OED and Localwise, click here.
