Diversity is central to TechCrunch’s mission. We believe everyone, regardless of background, should have access to the immense possibilities of the tech world, and, at the same time, we are confident technology businesses will benefit from a more diverse workforce. TechCrunch’s Include program aims to promote diversity by applying resources uniquely available to TechCrunch, including our editorial and events platforms, and by exemplifying the diversity mission in TechCrunch’s own staffing and culture.
Looking to get into tech but not sure where to begin? TechCrunch has compiled a directory of great organizations based in the Bay Area, Los Angeles and London that work with underrepresented groups through classes, meetups, mentorship, grants and much more. If your organization is missing, let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
