The rate of innovation is increasing.


Slide 68

Technologists, therefore, have an outsized impact on our experience of the world.


Slide 69

There is a widening chasm between the urgent need for qualified technologists and our ability to develop them.


Slide 70

The technology industry does not reflect the diversity of experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds that make up our communities.


Slide 71

The overwhelming homogeneity of the tech pipeline is acute early on…


Slide 72

The overwhelming homogeneity of the tech pipeline is acute early on… And becomes excruciating at executive levels.


Slide 73

We believe a person’s opportunity should not be limited by gender, skin color, religion, or socio-economic background.


Slide 74

Fostering a diverse and rich tech industry is a moral imperative.


Slide 75

Access to technologies created by and for diverse perspectives will improve income equality and social justice.


Slide 76

Although we face powerful structural barriers that erode the tech talent pipeline…


Slide 77

…there is nothing inherent about technology that makes it unfriendly to women and underrepresented minorities.   


Slide 78

The structural barriers are man-made and they will be unmade.


Slide 79

We believe in tackling big, seemingly insurmountable challenges by breaking them down into smaller tasks.


Slide 80

As Martin Luther King reminds us, “The arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice.”


Slide 81

Every small act of virtue creates a ripple effect beyond measure.


Slide 82

Together, we are creating a more welcoming, enriching, and equitable technology industry.


Slide 83

  It is difficult to dream about something that you have never seen.


Slide 84

Many people are discouraged from pursuing tech careers simply because they either do not know anyone who works in these fields, or they do not understand what people in these fields do.


Slide 85

We believe that telling our stories matters.


Slide 86

You can change the course of someone’s life by sharing the right idea at the right moment.


Slide 87

Telling someone “It’s important to me that you’re here” and “You can do this” makes a profound difference.


Slide 88

"Education isn't the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." --William Butler Yeats

Slide 90

We believe in lighting the fire and inspiring everyone - especially women and underrepresented minorities


Slide 91
