The Technology World in Toronto

Technology- an ongoing process of machinery and equipment transformation in the human race from one phase to another. Sadly, the same could not be said for the employees in the tech world as it is dominant by white people and people of colour are recessive in the industry. This is proven by Jessica Yamoah, who has spent more than 10 years working in the tech industry as she says “there are a few people of colour, and even fewer black women like herself.” This shows us that even though in most industries there is diversity it is not the same in the tech industry and it should be as Canada is supposedly a multicultural country with a diverse group of people. In Toronto, the tech world is one of the best in Canada due to the fact that big shot companies like Samsung, apple, bell, and Rogers reside in and have many branches in the city. There technology- as mentioned above- has transformed from one stage to another through the internet. Take Samsung for example, from Samsung galaxy 1 they created Samsung galaxy 2, then 3, then 4, then 5, then 6, then 7, and soon-to-be 8! Same goes for the evolution of products in other technology-based companies. These transformations were done over the years no doubt since they take time and money to evolve, but that is crucial to the prosperity of the tech industry.
