by William Jackson #MyQuestToTeach

The growing Hispanic / Latino community in Northeast
Florida has begun to come into its own in political, economic,
educational and societal influences.
Involved in creating positive and productive changes that
are a needed inspiration to increase the cultural diversity
of Northeast Florida. Jacksonville has open arms encouraging
Hispanic and Latino people with business and entrepreneurial
passions to come to Jacksonville and share their skills and
talents especially in the field of technology.

Technology embraces diversity with the building of people
that are smart creatives, digital innovators and artists. This
blog is a shoutout to the growing Hispanic / Latino communities
in Jacksonville that are growing as geeks, nerds and digital
innovators.

Inspired by Aida Correa and her passion to build bridges of
business, educational, cultural and entreprenrial collaborations
that promote growth, acceptance and tolerance within
diversity.

The growing accessibility of content creators is having
phenomenal growth and elevation for Hispanic / Latino women.
Technology is a great force for leveling the fields of educational
access to cultural resources and for women of diversity to connect
and collaborate with each other. One of the greatest growths
can be seen in the Hispanic / Latino community and the application
of Social Media and tech to build their Brand. The fastest growing
demographic of content creators and entrepreneurs in online
environments that are building thought leaders, digital innovators
and smart creatives are Women of Color particularly Hispanic / Latino.

The growth of women that have cultural backgrounds of
diversity are finding their voices and building collaborations
with others on social, economic, educational and family issues
that affect all aspect of their lives. Women of Color are being
recognized in the roles of Influencers and “Agents of Change.”
Women are changing the paradigm of intellectualism and
thought leadership because of their content. The growing
opportunities for leadership development and even influencing
economic elevation, tech has the power to change the world
for Hispanics / Latinos.

“Content is King” (Bill Gates) and “Engagement is Queen.”
Women are great engagers, their conversations and interactions
are not just information based, but generational because when you
educate women you educate generational communities that
are seen in the Hispanic / Latino community.
The knowledge is passed down and how to apply that knowledge
to real life situations is taught, knowledge is not powerful, it is
powerful and changing when it is applied the right way.

Diversity of content creation provides a visual that extends
beyond a person to embrace learning and expansion of
intellectualism across the board of families. Women are
transporters and engagers of information.

Latina content creators like Aida Correa, LoveBuilt Life #LoveBuiltLife https://2018.birmingham.wordcamp.org/speaker/aida-correa/
are changing the digital landscapes of Social Media, business
ownership, web development, blogging and speaking at conferences.
Aida Correa an upcoming speaker at WordCamp Birmingham,
Alabama has spoken at WordCamp Miami and a sponsor of
WordCamp Jacksonville Kids Camp. WordCamp Miami as a
volunteer and speaker, the upcoming WordCamp San Jose in
Costa Rica.

Ms. Correa like other Latina women in tech are changing the
paradigm of how Women of Color are thought of as business
owners, developers of intellectual thought and digital
influencers. The engagement of Hispanic / Latino women is
growing and expanding as girls and young women of color see
content creators that look like them, sound like them and are
seen in their communities engaged and involved.

The more girls of color are seeing women of color working to
be successful this builds future women business owners.
Women are influencing changes in technology quickly and quietly,
they are changing the perceptions that have been wrongly presented
by film, movies, television and mass media.  Hispanic / Latino
content creators are changing the perceptions America and even
the world has. To improve their growth women must continue to
evolve and  their knowledge, their exposure, their access
and their environments to participate and contribute in the area
of technology and even STEM, STEAM, STREAM.
Community activist, blogger, web developer, actor, poet, spoken
word artist like Ms. Correa are changing the mind-sets of communities
like Jacksonville, Florida. Providing workshops in Art and STEAM that
are attended by youth, teens and young adults. Hispanic / Latino
women are expanding their influence to show that cultural diversity
in this community is valuable and beneficial to a community as a whole.

Each person brings knowledge, experience, skill-sets, resources and
energy to create affective and beneficial change that encourages
communities, cities, states and nations to grow united and in strength.
Great change is happening for Hispanics / Latinas, the paradigm of a
glass ceiling has been shattered and destroyed. Hispanic / Latino women
with a passion in Tech, STEM, STREAM and other areas is growing and
making influences that are changing the perceptions wrongly created
by mass media.

To aid in the growth of diversity with women in technology here
are some resources to help build their access.
