to a question. "It's not so much a backlash against Asians, but . there needs to be a balance. I'm just trying to find it."
Lewis has organized protests against tech companies, demanding more transparency into their work forces because, she said, "You can be next in the unemployment line."
So Shelby supports greater outreach to women and underrepresented Nike Air Max 1 Essential Black/Black minorities at UC Berkeley's College of Engineering, which now has an associate dean of "Equity and Inclusion."
Several high profile tech companies contacted by this newspaper did not respond to requests for comment.
Tech companies, Lewis said, "do not want to employ Americans. They import labor from overseas, pushing for H 1B visas. Check the job boards. They basically say, 'H 1B Visa. Americans need not apply.' For years, women, blacks and Latinos have been kept out of the tech job market. Now white men are being forced to train their replacements."
Ryan Shelby, a 28 year old African American doctoral candidate in mechanical engineering at UC Berkeley, said young African American and Hispanic students are often raised in communities that don't stress science and math curriculums that are likely to guide them into tech jobs.
Meredith Leu grew up studying STEM courses surrounded by other Asian American students and graduated with honors from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont.
The tech employment picture hardly represents the growing number of Hispanics and Latinos who make up 27 percent of Santa Clara County, English Lueck said.
"I've been beating my head over this," Shelby said. "There's a lack of mentorship early on for a lot of these young students, who don't have Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Moire Persian Violet/Pure Platinum/Black
African American and Hispanic tech workers each saw slight decreases: Positions held by African American tech workers fell from 2.8 percent to 2.3 percent; those held by Hispanic workers dropped from 4.6 percent to 4.2 percent.
Shelby grew up on a farm in Letohatchee, Ala., where his love for engineering started by working on his father's tractor.
"It's the new world a world in which whites are not the majority," said Jan English Lueck, associate dean of the Air Max Zero Maroon
Now, as a 19 year old junior at SJSU studying computer science, Leu said many non Asians don't appreciate "the Asian culture, where there is a deep work ethic that America hasn't really bought into yet."
But it does reflect the young and growing number of Asian Americans "who were raised with a very strong STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) background" and are going into high tech.
Asian Americans make up half of the Bay Area's technology workforce, and their double digit employment gains came from jobs lost among white tech workers, according to an analysis by this newspaper of Census Bureau data released Thursday.
"Diversity actually increases the profitability of these companies," Lewis said. "In California, the minority is now the majority. How do you market your products and services to people you don't understand? How can your business survive? These companies still don't get it."
college of social sciences at San Jose State University, who is also co founder of the Silicon Valley Cultures Project. "Other people are being displaced."
The percentage of Asian tech workers grew from 39 percent in 2000 to just more than 50 percent in 2010 in Santa Clara, San Mateo, Alameda, Contra Costa and San Francisco counties combined, according to Census Bureau statistics.
"Do I worry about a backlash?" Leu asked in response Nike Air Max 97 Re Release
While 34 percent of African American and Hispanic students start out in engineering across the country, only 13 percent leave with degrees, he said.
The dramatic shift in the changing composition of the high tech workforce represents a new generation of homegrown and imported workers drilled in science, technology, engineering and math studies. But the shift in workplace demographics at least among tech companies fails to reflect the gains of California's Hispanic and Latino population, which lost ground in tech jobs along with African Americans.
Asian American software developers, in particular, saw huge gains all around the Bay Area: from nearly 45 percent of those workers in 2000 to more than 53 percent in Alameda County; and from nearly 50 percent to nearly 60 percent in both San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, the center of Silicon Valley.
Yolanda Lewis, president and CEO of the Oakland based Black Economic Council, sees trouble in the increased importation of Asian tech workers.
The Census Bureau changed the way it categorized some computer and related jobs in 2000, so the Mercury News analysis of the latest data was based on tracking the changes in categories that appeared both in 2000 and 2010.
Asian workers now dominate Silicon Valley tech jobs
these facilities and teachers to expose them to math, science and technology early on."
At the same time, white workers saw their more than 50 percent majority of tech jobs in 2000 fall to nearly 41 percent, according to the numbers released Thursday.
