“I’ve been an advisor to All Star Code since its inception in 2013 and I am thrilled to deepen our partnership but working together to create jobs for young people of color in tech. As a small startup, we have come a long way in expanding the diversity of our team. We still have work still to do, and I can’t wait to welcome the first ASC interns this summer.”—Jessica Lessin, founder, The Information

“Having been an Information subscriber from the very beginning I have learned much from their original reporting and admired their consistent commitment to racial and ethnic diversity and social justice. We are honored to have the opportunity to share our insights about building a technical talent pipeline with the tech community and connecting our talented young men to this fantastic work experience.” —Christina Lewis Halpern, Founder & CEO, All Star Code
