Austin Tech Alliance consults and relies on our Advisory Board for their expertise and feedback on our programs and strategy. This week we’ll learn about ATA Advisory Board Member, Tyson Tuttle, CEO of Silicon Labs.
Why did you decide to join the ATA Advisory Board?
Silicon Labs was founded in Austin 24 years ago, and giving back and encouraging employee engagement in our communities has been part of our company culture since day one. An important part of being a good corporate citizen is being civically engaged and staying educated on issues that impact our employees and the communities where we operate. ATA provides a forum for our company to get involved and stay informed on the most pressing issues in Austin.
What is your favorite thing(s) about being a part of ATA?
My favorite thing about ATA is being part of an incredible network of tech companies, from startups to long-established corporations, that understand the importance of supporting the community through civic engagement. We come together to share ideas and best practices and leverage our expertise to find innovative ways of solving some of Austin’s toughest problems.
Why is it important for the tech community to be civically engaged?
Tech is a robust part of Austin’s economy and plays a key role in its success, whether it’s through our talented workforce or the innovative products we create. It’s our responsibility to stay informed and engaged in the issues that impact our community to ensure Austin and its citizens thrive.
