INCREASING ACCESS TO TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION AT GENERAL ASSEMBLY

There is one central thread that runs through my career: helping people access resources and opportunities. At General Assembly, I observed that the while the programming was fantastic, it was not available to most people, especially under-represented minorities and low-income students. I wanted to change that. So I created a pilot program to help General Assembly SF understand how it could go about increasing access to its programs.
