Event description

Description

Bridge Foundry's CEO, Sarah Allen, will share the organization's 2017 diversity impact results and successes teaching code skills to people underserved in the tech industry. We'll also discuss our 2019 vision for corporate culture change.

The program will include:

  • Bridge Foundry’s 2017 diversity impact results.
  • Diversity insights from 2018 sustaining sponsors.
  • An interactive session modeled on Bridge Foundry’s new curriculum, which trains volunteers how to handle difficult conversations when needed.

Community and tech industry leaders will leave better-connected to others in the industry who care about diversity, and empowered with techniques for handling challenges that they can share back to their teams.

Organizer Bridge Foundry

Organizer of Bridge Foundry Impact & Vision

Since 2009, Bridge Foundry has empowered people with technology through teaching and facilitating access, enlarging the community of people who give back and teach others. Bridge Foundry was instrumental in the creation of the learn to code movement. Using our open-source curricula and teaching techniques, hundreds of workshops in dozens of cities around the world have been organized and taught by volunteers. 

Over the past ten years, Bridge Foundry has grown into a sustainable ecosystem of volunteers and communities that teach people coding skills throughout the world. We provide open source resources on how to create the tech that powers our world, focused on outreach to people traditionally underserved by the tech industry.
