Sxsw: #Yes We Code: From The 'Hood To Silicon Valley

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

Join Van Jones, co-founder of #YesWeCode, as he speaks with Maxine Williams, Facebook's Global Head of Diversity for a candid conversation sharing inspiring stories from the front lines of the movement to unleash the genius in untapped places. Let’s talk about the wins, and the challenges, in our movement to diversify tech, as well as what we can do as leaders in the tech industry. An initiative of Dream Corps Unlimited, #YesWeCode is working with a range of partners to train 100,000 low-opportunity youth to become high-level computer programmers. Surfacing tech talent in African-American, Latino and Native American communities, the movement to diversify tech is well underway -- and surprising even its leading proponents. This event requires a SXSW Interactive, Gold or Platinum Badge
