Hi everyone 😊, This is my first time launching on Product Hunt! I’m excited to share Diversify Tech with the community. Diversify Tech is for people like me who are underrepresented in tech. It is also for all of us in the tech industry who want to make it a welcoming and inclusive place. 💡The idea sparked when I went to a conference on a scholarship this year. I met so many like minded people and learned so much. I wanted others like me to have the same opportunity. There are so many resources and opportunities like this but they are shared within closed networks. People who are not already part of a certain network may never hear about them. I want to put them out in the open so that they are easier to find. ⚡️I started with a simple list of tech conference scholarships in June. Since then I shared over 150 scholarships. 🚀 In October, when @marie_dm_ of Women Make organized the Just f*ing ship it in 30 days challenge, I took the opportunity to grow the site further. Now, underrepresented people in tech can - Find scholarships to tech conferences & bootcamps - Find resources that help them speak at events & - Join the #ChangeTheRatio campaign to be featured if they are looking for a job Employers can - Share their jobs and talk about their efforts in diversity and inclusion - Find people who are looking for jobs & - Find resources to help them hire diverse candidates Tech Conference Organizers can - Find diverse speakers to speak at their events & - Share scholarships and discounts to their events Allies can - Offer discounts on their products & - Refer employers to post jobs and find potential candidates I’m just getting started and I’m excited to see where this leads. 💜 Thank you to @geschehaas of Dreamers // Doers, @mijustin of Mega Makers, @marie_dm_ of Women Make and the Women Who Code DC community for being amazing and providing so much support. Thank you to @tcodinat for the awesome gif and video. Thank you to @patio11 who pointed me in the right direction and advised me to focus on increasing diversity in tech. We met only for 30 minutes but you had an impact 😊 A huge thank you to @robwalling & @singlefounder for offering scholarships to MicroConf and @citadelgrad for being a great ally and sponsoring my ticket of the conference this year. You all sparked this idea. Finally, thank you PH for reading and I welcome your feedback. Now, let’s Diversify Tech!

Love that this launched today! I was able to attend a conference because of a scholarship I found on diversifytech.co, so I'm definitely a big fan. Go check it out!

Pros:

A welcoming and easy to navigate interface with TONS of resources.

Cons:

None so far :)

That is so great to hear. Thank you, Danielle!

It's a non-self-aware attempt to force tech into being inclusive in a clearly discriminatory and exclusive way. It's hypocritical in nature but blissfully and seemingly unaware of that fact.

Pros:

Tries to be progressively useful.

Cons:

It manages to discriminate against individualists who aren't aligned in groupthink or have widely diverse viewpoints.

With all do respect-Totally disagree, it provides another perspective of tech in which allows a person that has a diverse viewpoint to see it from an ethnology observation cultural understanding, just like in UX using empathy as the starting point to understand your persona groups needs.
"It manages to discriminate against individualists who aren't aligned in groupthink or have widely diverse viewpoints." - um, how do you figure?
I mean this in the most sincerest of ways but...what are you talking about? What is hypocritical/groupthink/non-self-aware?
The crazy thing is people cannot even see how hypocritical these sort of things are. You could explain it until you are blue in the face and they just look at you with a blank expression...
Tech needed this! Congrats on the official launch and securing some of your first paid sponsorships Veni! 🎯
@stephsmith Thank you, Steph! ❤️
I am subscriber and I’ve personally benefited from this resource. I was able to attend my first ever tech conference on scholarship and it was an amazing experience. Thank you, @venikunche.
@dev_nikema So glad to hear! Thank you, Nikema.
