About the Cause

Beyond Inclusion

There is a need to foster a pipeline of talent from diverse backgrounds. It is an effort to create equity and provide BIPOC & historically marginalized minorities with bootcamp-style training, followed up with career development sessions and potential job placement opportunities

Despite a decade of attention and recent statements of commitment to equitable access opportunities, current data suggests that very little progress has been made in increasing representation across all levels of the tech sector.

These disparities are not just harmful to communities, rather, it is an issue of significant global importance for meeting economic demands. The business case for diversity is very strong. Diversity wins.
