Nature and Context

Only 12% of the tech workforce are women, and only 1% are African-Americans. The aim should be to bring more diversity to the tech sector, while empowering people from every community to overcome poverty through tech skills. Ensuring opportunities are presented to a diverse crowd means teaching skills to minorities who have been previously underrepresented in the field.
