For many students, tech-driven fields can be intimidating. When they get stuck or lack support, they drop out before ever having a chance to succeed—regardless of their abilities.
"The result is a smaller and less diverse workforce in tech."
Those who make it past these barriers during their educational journey can end up feeling excluded by workplace cultures that don’t match their own backgrounds and experiences. Far too many talented people avoid choosing or actively decide to leave tech because it can be unwelcoming.
Our mission? To help build a more inclusive future for the tech industry by fostering confidence, resilience, and a sense of belonging.
