This morning my wife Laura () 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 () helps high-performing black and Latino engineering students begin amazing careers with top tech employers.
  • Hack The Hood () provides low-income youth of color with training and mentoring in computer and business skills.
  • Girls Who Code () 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 ‘s Stanford philanthropy MOOC course starting this week, she taught me everything I know!
