African-Americans make up only 4% of people in software development jobs, and Latino/as make up only 5% of these jobs in the US (source). Coding bootcamps will graduate over 16,000 students this year and place them into jobs as developers at startups and enterprise companies. 63% of those coding bootcamp graduates are white. In this webinar, we're joined by code schools Turing, Sabio.la, Startup Institute, and Telegraph Academy to talk about racial diversity in bootcamps, why we should change these statistics, and how bootcamps can support students from underrepresented backgrounds. 

What We Cover In this Live Panel:

  • The current state of coding bootcamps- who attends a bootcamp and who works in tech?
  • Which bootcamps focus on diversity, why it's important and how teams can be supportive of underrepresented minorities in the classroom. 
  • Detailed tips & advice from bootcamp founders, instructors and students.
  • Plus, our panel (from bootcamps like Turing, Telegraph Academy, Sabio.la, and Startup Institute) answer questions from the audience.
