At Code Fellows, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to develop. In reality, many qualified candidates aren’t pursuing careers in a technology-related field because they are discouraged somewhere along the way. Some lose interest because they lack role models or encouragement, and others avoid tech or STEM careers because they perceive workplaces to be unfriendly or outright hostile.

The percentages of coders who are women (less than 20 percent), African American (less than 3 percent), or Hispanic or Latino (less than 2 percent) are shockingly low compared to their place in the general population. The low number of veterans moving into tech-related jobs is also surprising considering the leadership and problem-solving skills they can bring.

The market needs more women and underrepresented populations in the tech industry for numerous reasons: for employers, more diversity in tech means an expanded talent pool, improved team culture, and better products; for employees, tech jobs provide a path to high-paying, rewarding careers.

We need your support to continue this progress! Whether you’re a graduate of our program, an organization in the community, or a community member who wants to help others enter a life-changing career, please consider making a tax-deductible donation today.
