For many developers, tech-driven fields can be intimidating.

 

When you get stuck or lack support, you might end up leaving tech instead of staying in tech and get promoted.

 

Consequence

"The result is a smaller and less diverse workforce in tech."

 

Feeling of exclusion

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.

 

Solution

By fostering tech resilience, confidence and mindset, you can grow the needed skills to not only stay in tech but also prepare you for your next position in tech, whether that's a new type of role or one with more managerial responsibility.

 

Our mission? To help build a more inclusive future for the tech industry by fostering confidence, resilience, and a sense of belonging.
