This morning my wife Laura (
@LAAF) and I are tickled pink to announce three Andreessen-Arrillaga Inclusion Grants. These three Inclusion Grants total $500,000, and go to three stellar young nonprofit organizations working to grow inclusion in tech.
- Code2040 (
@CODE2040) helps high-performing black and Latino engineering students begin amazing careers with top tech employers.
- Hack The Hood (
@hackthehood) provides low-income youth of color with training and mentoring in computer and business skills.
- Girls Who Code (
@GirlsWhoCode) catalyzes girls in junior/senior years of high school to gain computing skills and connect into the tech industry.
Laura and I couldn’t be more excited to work with all three amazing groups to help them scale their programs over the next several years. We think there’s a huge opportunity to include more people, including/especially underrepresented groups, into the tech field and industry.
Finally, a big thank you to the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering. My 2013 prize money helped fund these grants. Sign up now for
@LAAF‘s Stanford philanthropy MOOC course starting this week, she taught me everything I know!
