GOAL

To accelerate the movement of diversity and inclusion within the IT industry by providing opportunities for minorities, of both  a professional and student background, to excel in their career.

What Drives This Company?

Let's look at 2020 Statics:
(Preceding Coronavirus Pandemic)
Stem Professionals populate 31% men and 15% women. Within that statistic, Science or Engineers WITH degrees THAT ARE NOT working are 20% women, while 10% who are unemployed are men. In all workforce jobs, women account 57% but of that number, only 25% are in computing and tech industries. In those areas of computing and tech industries, men average 92k a year, while women average 75k. 
Moving aside those numbers, 1% of African Americans make up TECH STARTUP companies. Less of that 1% are women!
