“Fixing Silicon Valley’s diversity problems is not just a good thing for entrepreneurs from underrepresented backgrounds; it’s a boon for the entire innovation economy. Companies that have an interest in growing and thriving need to embrace the competitive advantage that diversity brings to their team.” –Mitch Kapor, Co-Chair, Kapor Center for Social Impact

You are cordially invited to join the professional organizations of the Bay Area for a holiday mixer celebrating and supporting Diversity and Inclusion in the Workforce. We are very excited to have Van Jones, founder of Rebuild the Dream and #YesWeCode as our honored guest. Van and his team have been working to improve diversity numbers in tech by providing digital training opportunities to minority youth across the United States.

All proceeds to benefit #YesWeCode

Join us in the holiday spirit to celebrate this great cause and to put it into action!
