Our most recent community outreach partner is Code The Dream.
As America changes, the tech industry has been slow to keep up. Over half our children born today are minorities, and 1 in 4 have an immigrant parent. Yet Silicon Valley and the U.S. tech economy remain remarkably non-diverse. And that amounts to a lot of missed opportunities for all of us.
Code the Dream recognizes that young people from minority and immigrant backgrounds have great ideas and will play a huge part in our 21st century economy. Already immigrants are more than twice as likely to start their own business, and those businesses create over 25% of new jobs.
Can you imagine if more people with that drive knew how to code? Together we can make it happen.
