Eleven Fifty Academy is 100% committed to speaking up and taking action against discrimination. As an organization, we support actionable change. The systemic racism that exists in our systems, laws, policies, practices, and procedures cannot be tolerated. Recent events have demonstrated we, as citizens and organizations, need to do more to eradicate racism from our culture.
Eleven Fifty Academy is a nonprofit educational organization that supports equality for all. To date, approximately 1 in 4 of our graduates are minorities. However, we want to do more. We have already initiated new programs to increase access to our transformational offerings. Actions matter and conversations matter, but financial support matters too. Our words and actions are backed by dollars to improve these numbers for the black community.
In addition, we are committing to further educate our diverse team on racial biases, the undercurrent of racism that exists in the tech world, and how we can address this challenge.
We stand in solidarity with those impacted by systemic racism and violence, and those fighting against it. We hear you, we see you, we are with you.
