OUR PURPOSE

Reset the system for aspirational and curious humans.

Technology has incredible power to change and influence the way we live our lives and the way we work. This is only becoming more and more true as innovation happens faster and on a wider scale than ever before.

Unfortunately, the culture of technology tends to encourage only some identities, and access to education and opportunities is not equitable. We are here to combat that. We want to make sure that young people everywhere have the opportunity to wield the power of technology and pursue bright futures in STEAM.

 

OUR MISSION

We turn technology and leadership skills
into lasting impact.

 

Our core program pillars

We provide education and opportunities that equip and empower aspirational and curious humans to be successful in a tech-driven future.

01

We offer rigorous technical training and utilize real-world tools and skills that scholars can apply outside of class.

DEI&B STATEMENT

How We Approach Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging

As we seek to create more equitable access to technology and leadership skills, we are constantly working to identify where there is emerging talent, who they are and how we can best support them on a broad basis.

As such, we prioritize diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging, and strive to improve on these measures every day. Additionally, we want to lead by example, encouraging our community - including scholars, instructional leaders, partners and funders - to also embrace these principles.

We also recognize that we are on a journey. We are not always going to get it right, but we are going to try our best to improve every day. We are learning and growing and can always do more and better. We appreciate the feedback and ideas of our community on how we can pursue these ideals.

 

 
We teach, support, and advocate for aspirational and curious humans at the intersection of identities *

by decentering whiteness and dismantling patriarchy in our collaborative, experiential learning environments that are safe, inclusive, accessible, and fun to change the way the STEAM industry looks and operates over time.

*including gender (all women & people whose gender expression or presentation is different from cultural or social stereotypes associated with assigned sex at birth), race (BIPOC), and socioeconomic status.)
