We strive to create change agents that are reflective of the great diversity of Queens and NYC.
Access Code is tackling current problems in tech. Low income communities and non-traditional audiences currently do not have access to the tech sector. Across the United States, women make up only a quarter of the developer workforce. Hispanics and African Americans make up 13% of the tech workforce and only 1% of startup founders.
The wealth of diversity and broad range of backgrounds that exist in Queens can help create an inclusive tech community. These new ideas and new experiences will help build better products and use technology to solve unaddressed problems that may exist in these communities.
