Ne-Yo Invests $2.3 Million In This Coding School To Help Black People Get Tech Jobs

Sean Collons:

Last week when we talked to one of Shine’s co-founders, Marah Lidey, we spoke about increasing diversity in tech.

With Google opening their Howard West campus, Uber taking flak for its lack of diversity and Hired showing just how uniform tech is with hard data, we wondered what she thought could be done to improve things.

“Talking about it is important,” Lidey said, “And that’s not enough, obviously, but it’s really something that needs to be emphasized because there’s still a lot of people who don’t want to talk about it.”
