It is no secret that the technology industry struggles when it comes to building inclusive workplaces where women and people of color and other underrepresented groups are adequately represented. Combined, Black and Latino employees represented just 3% to 5% of employees at the 23 highest-grossing tech companies, according to a 2016 analysis by the Kapor for Social Impact. OnPurpose is committed to increasing access to high-demand and high-growth IT careers for minorities living in low-income communities.
