According to Fortune’s study on large tech companies, on average, women hold only 1/3 of the tech jobs in large tech companies like Intel, Microsoft, HP, and LinkedIn.
Within the same companies, minorities hold even a smaller share of the jobs; Native Americans being the smallest percentage with an average of 0.2% (<1%.) Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders were tied around 0.3% (<1%.) Blacks held the third lowest percentage of jobs, averaging 5% and Hispanics held about 7% of the jobs at these large tech companies.
When smaller tech companies are included, women only hold 25% of the tech jobs available on average.
Kids Next Code LLC
I started the Kids Next Code program in January of 2016
Organization is geared towards increasing the exposure kids and adults in deprived communities have to technology education
Since 2016, I’ve taught STEM related courses such as coding and robotics to over 400 students (ages 5-18) and 200 adults in Georgia
In 2019, the Kids Next Code program expanded to New York to bring coding programs to Queens, New York and New Rochelle, New York.
"Prior to entering the Reeve's Coding Program my kids ages 12,9 and 8 had never had any coding experience. Reeves's Coding Program not only introduced my kids to coding in a fun and engaging way, it also excited them and peeked there interest. During my kids private session I was able to learn and pick up on some basic coding skills while I watch my kids build their first website. Needless to say I would definitely recommend Reeve's Coding Program for anyone, any age, looking to learn coding from a energetic, knowledgeable and engaging teacher "
