Join us for a special evening honoring Black Excellence & Achievement as we celebrate Black History Month!

This month, we present a unique opportunity to connect with the Bay’s leading, young, diverse professionals, to discover more about the initiatives of #YesWeCode and to hear from accomplished black leaders that exemplify excellence in our community.

The #YesWeCode initiative targets low-opportunity youth and provides them with the necessary resources and tools to become world-class computer programmers. In uplifting our youth this way, we shift the trajectory of their futures and transform their relationships in their communities and their country.

Honorary Guest Speakers:

- Van Jones – Leader, CNN Contributor, & President of Rebuild The Dream
- Charles Hudson – Partner at Precusor Ventures
- Jason Mayden – Designer at Accel Partners | Media Designer at Stanford d.School
- Enitan Bereola II – Bestselling Author, Speaker, and Columnist
- Jolen Anderson, Chief Diversity Officer, Visa

Plus, special guest appearances…TBA stay tuned!
