On May 13th, CODE2040 kicked-off our 2013 summer programming with our first-ever Intern Onboarding Workshop. Our goal was to provide our host companies with best practices around successfully bringing on and managing interns over the summer.

I couldn’t be prouder to introduce to you the incredibly talented, inspiring young women and men that together make up the 2013 CODE2040 Fellows Class.

First, it’s [...]
Hello, friends! The CODE2040 team is back in San Francisco after an exciting and inspiring trip to New York City earlier this month! We were in town primarily to participate in TechCrunch (thanks to AOL/TechCrunch, one of our gracious and fabulous supporters)! We even got to spend time with CODE2040 supporters like Tracy Chou from Pinterest, pictured [...]
Even though we’re a month late (whoops!), we thought it would be fun to share this snapshot from our time at the NSBE Convention in March. We had so much fun getting to know the super-talented NSBE students that came by our booth. NSBE executive director Carl Mack’s impromptu visit to the CODE2040 table was [...]
