Much of the work that /dev/color does towards maximizing the impact of Black software engineers is made possible through the support of our eight sponsors, Facebook, Pinterest, Google, YouTube, Airbnb, Asana, Uber, and Collective Health. Our corporate sponsors believe deeply in /dev/color’s mission and are committed to corporate diversity.
All of the sponsoring companies have engineers participating in our A* program, which creates environments for Black engineers to learn from one another and challenges them to reach ambitious career goals. Due to the benefit our A* program provides their employees, these companies are committed to ensuring the program is around long term. Additionally, we work with these companies to share information about their efforts to attract and retain Black software engineers.
In addition to formal sponsorship, there are also other ways for companies to support /dev/color.
