This tour will bring together diverse & non-traditional talent with companies who need their skills the most.
Right now America has over 500,000 open tech jobs - by 2020 this number will grow to over 1 million. At the time same time, over 60% of all new coders, engineers & data scientists are emerging from bootcamps & industry-current vocational schools.
We are connecting the current & next generation of technical talent, which happens to be more diverse.
That's right. Women, people of color, & LGBTQ people are opting for more affordable & accessible coding bootcamps & online education programs over 4-year computer science degrees. At the heart of our events is a deep commitment to representation in tech. We do that by showcasing top tech talent who are changing the world, who happen to be women, people of color, LGBTQ, veterans & people with disabilities. Our goal is to push the industry towards a higher standard, a technology sector that is representative of the people who live in this country. because we believe, together, we can & will change the face of technology to help American workers get the jobs they deserve.
