I joined Code Nation as an official member of its Bay Area Leadership Council.
Code Nation is a 501c3 nonprofit that equips students in under-resourced high schools with the skills, experiences, and connections that together create access to careers in tech.
As a member of Code Nation’s Bay Area Leadership Council, I help Code Nation achieve their mission by providing the Bay Area Managing Director, Shantina Jackson, with regionally focused strategic advice, connections, and resources.
As a member, my responsibilities include:
∙ Taking a public stand in support of educational opportunity & the inclusive growth of the Bay Area’s tech sector
∙ Helping Code Nation navigate the local coding/computer science landscape and establishing deep partnerships among Bay Area school leaders
∙ Fostering a community of Bay Area companies who actively support Code Nation’s work with their tech talent and resources
∙ Growing Code Nation’s philanthropic base of support by making a personally meaningful donation every year and introducing Code Nation to others who can give
∙ Providing strategic advice and guidance to the Bay Area Managing Director
As part of the Industry Inclusion Committee, I specifically help more with volunteer recruitment, company recruitment and alumni support.
