ABOUT
US

01

We inform.

We see a clear gap in understanding diversity in technology education. While demographic composition data is often accessible, little information is collected on the actual experience of students of all backgrounds. Our goal is to make data like this common-place, so that students, departments, and the greater public are informed.

03

We connect the dots.

We create platforms to foster conversation. From connecting students from campuses across the country to share experiences, collaborate, and advocate to connecting students and faculty for open and honest communication on the state of underrepresented students in computer science, we identify new opportunities to bring people together to discuss and reflect.

02

We amplify voices.

We are fundamentally a student-driven movement. We believe that students should have a say in actively shaping their educational experience. By creating portraits with the statistics, we create an online gallery that sheds light on the challenges of underrepresented students and inspires the community to take action.

04

We drive equity.

It is critical that our data drives progress. We believe in keeping departments informed with updated and detailed analysis of the climate at their campuses. Identifying key areas and challenges will help fuel data-driven decisions that effectively address gaps. By aggregating all data from all participating campuses, we set the benchmark and drive accountability in technology education.
