I think Hackbright is doing the exact thing the software industry needs to rectify the extreme imbalance in gender diversity. Some of the most influential pioneers of software engineering were women, and it's wild to read about them then look at the disparity in the modern industry. I hope I can be a sounding board and provide necessary insight to intelligent women who are trying to change the way that we all think about software.

I’m a huge fan of Hackbright and its graduates, and want to be part of it! Mentoring has also given me great professional perspective by re-acquainting myself with how people approach coding for the first time."
