ALPFA Pittsburgh Chapter presents an engaging Panel Discussion that brings awareness, promotes, encourages, and builds a more diverse pipeline of Latino talent in the STEM fields in Pittsburgh. The program will be opened by Jennifer Van Dam, Program Coordinator, Innovation Works and board member of ALPFA Pittsburgh Chapter. The panel will be moderated by Justin Driscoll, Senior Director, People and Culture Initiatives, Pittsburgh Technology Council and the panelists will consist of:


  • Mary Ann Blair, Chief Information Officer, Carnegie Mellon University

  • Gabriela Cach, Student at Carnegie Mellon University & President of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers

  • Jennifer Wagner, Head of Innovation Center in Pittsburgh, BNY Mellon

  • Ernesto Silva Mojica, Innovation Manager, Covestro LLC

  • Jim Thompson-Colon, PhD., Sr. Project Manager, R&D, Covestro LLC 


Statistics underscore the importance of developing diverse talent in the STEM field. By 2040, the African-American and Latino communities will make up nearly 40 percent of the U.S. population. Currently, these minority groups earn nearly 18 percent of computer science bachelor’s degrees. Yet, they make up only around five percent of the technical workforce at top tech companies.
