The Tech Sector boasts some of the best careers and highest paying jobs available, but this growing industry has struggled to reach our Black and Brown communities. Through our Tech Cohorts, we connect these job seekers directly to our corporate partners, giving them the skills and support they need to upskill and start a new career in tech. Through our scholarship program, we offer financial help for people on their path to a career in the growing tech sector.
The rise of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) efforts reflects the growing awareness that corporations and businesses need to attract more diverse talent. This not only improves company culture, it paves the way for more innovation by opening companies up to the untapped brilliance in these overlooked communities. Yet many still don’t know where to start. We connect job seekers directly to our corporate partners, build training cohorts to upskill and fill positions, and help top tech organizations ensure great onboarding and retention of diverse talent.
Representation matters. If you can’t see the possibilities you can’t even begin to achieve them. We hold events like our “Activate and Inspire” series and Black Future Weekend, to build relationships between communities and influential leaders in the tech industry. Through guided conversations, networking opportunities and engaging activities, we encourage creative thinking to help everyone see that they can be the architects of the future.
