Launched in 2019, Coding Her Future engages girls in immersive computer science and engineering programs, working to bridge the gender gap in STEM. Women make up more than 50% of the U.S. population, but only 18% of the computer science undergraduates are female. Girls who have access to STEM camps or programs are three times as likely to major in computer science and engineering in college. To date, over 80,000 girls have graduated from iD Tech programs. Under this initiative, iD Tech matches partnership donations to provide life-changing scholarships. Our goal is to inspire and empower girls in tech, cultivating the future women of STEM.
iD Tech is dedicated to closing the digital divide in STEM education.
Through our Social Impact initiatives, we create life-changing tech experiences that embolden underrepresented students to shape the future. iD Tech believes that children of every gender, ethnicity, background, ability, and socioeconomic status deserve the chance to become tech changemakers.
Our social impact initiatives
Coding Her Future
Since its inception, our scholarship programs have provided tens of thousands of educational experiences to underserved students to attend iD Tech programs. Through our Tuition Assistance Program, Corporate sponsorships, iD Tech has introduced students throughout the world to STEM, sparking their curiosity in tech. Every child deserves access to quality tech education, regardless of socioeconomic background. Our goal is to help bridge the digital divide.
Coding Our Future
Coding Our Future was launched in 2019 as a way to collaborate with our partners to help break down the barriers to STEM for underrepresented youth. Blacks and Latinx make up roughly 30% of the U.S. population, but only represent 14% of computer science undergraduates. Students that are exposed to the magic of tech at a younger age are more likely to pursue STEM as a career. iD Tech matches partnership donations with underserved youth to provide life-changing scholarships. Our goal is to create impactful STEM experiences, providing a serious competitive edge for the future changemakers of tech.
We believe in giving back and sharing cutting-edge tech with our communities. In 2019, we donated nearly $250,000 worth of equipment to the Discovery Museum, Washoe County School District, and Mount Rose School, including LEGO robotics kits, 3D printers, and STEM-based board games. Our goal is to ignite a passion in the future leaders of STEM with cutting-edge technology.
Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
At iD Tech, we are striving to create a just, equitable, diverse, and inclusive (JEDI) workplace by intentionally building a place for ingenuity, diverse perspectives, and where talent can grow and thrive. The JEDI council has six core members yet all of our employees are considered to be the “7th member” since we believe that every single person on our team plays a significant role in creating a thriving and inclusive workplace. Each year, the JEDI Council sets strategic goals based on employee feedback, as well as external research on best practices, and creates subcommittees across all departments to help create systemic change.
Employee Community Engagement
Making an impact in the community is an integral part of our company culture. Every year, our employees dedicate hundreds of hours to give back. We collaborate with a variety of nonprofit organizations to make a meaningful difference. Projects range from 3D printing face shields and mask extenders for healthcare workers, writing letters to soldiers, volunteering at creek clean-ups, contributing at food banks, and helping provide resources for underrepresented communities through our charitable donation matching program. Our goal is to empower employees to maximize volunteer hours and connect authentically with our community.
