INCREASING DIVERSITY IN TECH
We foster tech in Queens but our work has broader impact and is tackling current problems in tech. Across the United States, women make up only 12% of the developer workforce. Hispanics and African Americans make up 7% of the tech workforce and only 1% of startup founders.
The wealth of diversity that exists in Queens can help create a tech community that is more reflective of NYC and our society. These new ideas and new experiences will help build better products and use technology to solve unaddressed problems that may exist in these communities.
