We are a small non-profit start up whose aim is to change the game when it comes to hiring practices in the tech industry. We hope to change the field from a white, male-dominated employment to one of women of color who come from poor or impoverished circumstances. Our goals are to diversify the industry, provide social support for women with criminal backgrounds and to give resources so that they can lift themselves and their families out of poverty and the cycle of recidivism.
We hope to create a community in Atlanta within the tech field that is more synonymous with the actual population. In doing so, we seek to change the education possibilities for women with felonies, reduce the rates of recidivism and decrease the chances of their children being lost to the prison industrial complex.
