Women represent only 26% of the computing workforce and 11% of senior leadership roles in tech. Only 3% of computing professionals are Black and there are zero Black or Latinx women CEOs of Fortune 500 tech companies. Women's quit rate (41%) in tech is over twice that of men (17%) and 31% of women feel stuck/unsupported in their careers. Ada advocates for and supports shifting the culture of tech to be more inclusive of women, gender expansive, BIPOC, and other underserved and disinvested communities, narrowing the gap in one of our most economically prosperous and culturally influential sectors. Through this grant we will scale our in-person and digital learning models nationally. Our goal is to create a self-perpetuating flywheel that brings women and gender expansive people into tech, retains and grows them into leadership roles, and enables them to hire and develop exponentially more women and gender expansive people.
