This is a national consortium of women and allies that advocate for strategies that invest in and inspire the advancement of young women of color in tech careers—with particular focus on women from underrepresented communities and non-traditional pathways. The coalition is comprised of business leaders, corporations, nonprofits, and community organizations, who will address the glaring inequities of women of color in tech.
Our goal is to increase the number of women of color pipelined into the tech industry in three ways:
increasing the number of companies and individuals that hire and retain women of color, specifically from under-resourced communities.
achieve pay equity for women of color in tech by addressing women’s lack of visibility in and access to tech sector employment.
We want to ensure that women of color are not left behind as companies begin to rebound from the recession and recruit for tech talent. The Command Shift steering committee is providing direction and support for strategies that will advance young women of color as they pursue tech careers. Sign-up for updates about the coalition and for more information about joining the Steering Committee.
