"Five Years of Tech Diversity Reports—and Little Progress" Wired article.
While technology is an emerging field, tech companies are lagging in their hiring practices as it pertains to a diverse population at their companies. This is after 5 years of investigation in or data about diversity in tech.
One of The CODE's goals is to build pipelines with our partners as it pertains to job readiness and literacy, internships, and job opportunities for our students. While there are programs that are gender specific to address diversity in tech, which we applaud because no one program or platform can tackle the issue of diversity in tech alone, The CODE is a non-gender specific. Our goal is to cater to all underserved and underprivileged students.
