The 4th Annual Diversity in Tech Awards presented by BNY Mellon gathers 300 Guests to Propel Progress Forward for the Industry
“It took me 20 years to realize that the answer to our worries about whether tech can be trusted with our future is to bring all these kids into the field.” - Anil Dash, CEO of Glitch
May 1 wraps the 4th Annual Diversity in Tech Awards, an evening that recognized and celebrated champions who are helping to change the face of tech to one that is more inclusive and representative of our shared communities.
Presented by BNY Mellon and supporting sponsors including RBC Capital, Deloitte, Best Buy, Cushman & Wakefield (see full list of sponsors below), in-kind sponsor Finn Partners, and our committed Board of Directors, 300 guests came together to celebrate at the Bowery Hotel.
The evening generated substantial revenue to directly provide young people in New York and across the country with the access and motivation to harness technology for a greater good through Mouse’s programs. We are all aware that the demand for a STEM-skilled workforce is constantly increasing and, yet, only 40% of U.S. schools offer computer science classes with programming. The support from the night will directly address this root issue to help build the pipeline for our workforce.
