Established in 2016, Hack.Diversity is the talent provider that helps remarkable people succeed by closing the gap between the culture organizations have and the one organizations want. We partner with employers to tap into the full potential of the talent landscape by bridging underrepresented technologists into the field and helping organizations evolve systems-wide practice to drive retention and promotion of that talent.
