“We look forward to welcoming a new group of mentees this year, offering each one more professional development opportunities as well as additional funds toward their education. Our first year mentees have had a profound effect on our organization, and we are honored to be a part of their future success. The work to close the equity gap in tech requires consistent, intentional action, and we hope this program continues to have an impact on the industry as a whole.”– Ben Cash, Founding Partner of Reason One.
