Jointhe ourTeam!

Because of who we serve, and our mission to support the underrepresented in the IT field, we find it extremely important that who we support can see themselves performing excellence in the IT field. This will boost confidence in knowing that they aren’t alone in this area. This isn’t an attempt to divide, but provide a proven solution that will lead to even more equity in the IT field.
Recruiting underrepresented teachers of color to teach in the field of Information Technology (IT) is essential for promoting diversity and inclusion in the industry. Despite the growing demand for IT professionals, there is a significant lack of diversity in the sector. Many organizations are struggling to recruit and retain qualified employees from underrepresented communities, which can lead to a lack of diversity in both the workforce and the educational institutions that train the next generation of IT professionals.

By hiring more teachers of color in IT programs, we can help to close this gap and provide students from underrepresented backgrounds with the necessary support and guidance to succeed in the field. To attract more teachers of color to the IT field, schools, and organizations can take a variety of steps. One approach is to develop targeted recruitment programs that focus on underrepresented communities. This can involve partnering with local community organizations, business fairs in diverse neighborhoods, and offering scholarships and other incentives to encourage people from underrepresented groups to pursue careers in IT education. In addition, schools can provide support and mentorship for new teachers of color, including professional development opportunities and networking events. By creating a more diverse and inclusive environment in IT education, we can help to ensure that the next generation of IT professionals reflects the rich diversity of our society.
