Cognizant U.S. Foundation Commits $1.5 Million to Help Double the Number of Black, Latinx, and Native American Women Earning Computing Degrees by 2025

The Cognizant U.S. Foundation has joined the Reboot Representation Tech Coalition, a partnership of 17 technology companies working to increase the number of Black, Latinx, and Native American women in technology. As part of its recent $5 million commitment to serve communities of color, the Foundation’s $1.5 million award will support the coalition’s work to double the number of women of color earning computing degrees by 2025.

The Reboot Representation Tech Coalition launched in September 2018 in conjunction with research findings and actionable recommendations by Pivotal Ventures, an investment and incubation company created by Melinda Gates and McKinsey & Company. To date, 17 member companies have committed approximately $18 million to its mission, recruiting more women of color to declare a major in computing and establish a career in technology. The Cognizant U.S. Foundation joins the coalition as an executive member alongside Microsoft, Salesforce.org, Verizon, Walmart, Adobe, BNY Mellon, Intel, and Dell Technologies.
