Our efforts to support diversity and inclusion span beyond the walls of our organization. Since 2014, we’ve made it a focus to build community partnerships with programs, like yours, that support underrepresented communities.

As our community partnerships grow, we are compelled to make necessary changes to change the face of Silicon Valley. To shift the tech culture, we announce our vision of 50/50 gender balance at Hack Reactor by 2020.

To help us reach this goal, we have produced the bootcamp industry’s first Diversity and Inclusion Report. We invite you to share your feedback and join us on this growth journey as we revolutionize the tech industry.
