During Black History Month 2022, the National Action Network’s Greater Baltimore Chapter presented Career Communications Group CEO Tyrone Taborn with the inaugural Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Promoter Award.
Recognized for his contributions to the advancement of STEM and his dedication to enhancing scientific and engineering literacy in minority communities, Taborn is a leading authority on how technology impacts business and society.
The National Action Network (NAN) is a civil rights organization founded by the Reverend Al Sharpton. Headquartered in New York, NAN currently has over 105 chapters. The Greater Baltimore Chapter is one of the network’s many chapters that meet and organize around local issues
This weekend, Taborn sat down with Reverend Al Sharpton and talk radio show host Larry Young for a discussion on digital equality.
“It is our time,” Taborn wrote in a social media post. “The national discussion has started With Rev. Al Sharpton,” Taborn said. “How will the metaverse impact the community? How can blockchain and Web 3.0 close the digital divide?”
Career Communications Group’s STEM City USA is an early adopter of tools in Web3.0 and has worked with various enterprises as they lay out the ecology of the metaverse and the application scenarios of the metaverse that are emerging.
“Much of what we talk about has to do with a creative community, and how the metaverse will develop a collaborative community,” Taborn said. “The metaverse is having a digital agency over your own information. The metaverse is always there. It’s persistent. It’s about us being able to come together to be part of a community. Collaboration with universities and companies helps create a community, how we collaborate and how the metaverse can be transformational.”
