ColorStack is increasing the entrance, retention, and success of Black, Latinx, and Native American college students in computing through community building, academic support, and career development.
10% of Computer Science graduates identify as Black or Latinx. We are driving the ecosystem towards 30%.
We increase entrance by partnering with high school tech nonprofits serving racially underrepresented students and funneling them into our chapter schools.
We increase retention by launching and supporting campus chapters in partnership with CS departments to identify and eliminate barriers to retaining our students.
We increase success by bridging the gap in exposure to opportunities for career development.
Above all, we are cultivating the largest community of Black and Latinx student technologists to increase their sense of belonging in the industry.
Our mission is to build a diverse & inclusive workforce for everyone.
