Our contribution

SV Academy wanted to bring diversity to the Silicon Valley workforce.

The challenge was to explain what they do, receive applications from professionals looking for a place in Silicon Valley and connect with companies committed to bringing diversity to their talent. 

From this collaboration, SV Academy launched its pilot program, with which it connected 31 students. 40% were African-American, Latino, or LGBTQ+. All of the graduates came from lower socio-economic or immigrant families, with many located in states far from the Valley. So far, 90% of them have been hired by top Valley firms.
