Why this matters:
- There are 20k STEM jobs unfilled in Washington, 65% in computer science
- 85% of software developers are male
- Seattle has one of the largest gender pay gaps in the country
- Only 1.5% of open-source contributors are women
- Diverse teams have been shown to frequently outperform homogeneous teams
- It's the right thing to do
Again, we hope you can find a way to help out the Ada Developers Academy, whether that's through a donation or simply by getting the word out.
