Let’s Bridge the Gap


The Workforce Gap

By 2026, the U.S. will have 900,000 computing job openings, but only 450,000 CS Bachelor’s graduates to fill them


The Gender Gap 

Women earn 58% of college degrees, but only 19% of CS degrees


TPI: the 2X Solution

The Technology Pathways Initiative (TPI) aims to produce 2X more women graduates with computing degrees per year by 2020-21
