Why don’t our workplaces look like our neighborhoods? That’s the question that sparked re:work training’s formation in 2016. Since then, our mission has been two-fold: improve employment outcomes for Chicago’s underrepresented communities and combat the lack of diversity in tech’s workforce in the process.
A MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO:
The first step of that work is to simply acknowledge that the opportunities and resources are not balanced among all of Chicago’s communities. As a result, these underrepresented communities are filled with untapped Black and Latinx talent that must overcome historic wage imbalances, undervalued housing markets and poorer quality schools.
By empowering our candidates and companies we not only make their dreams a reality, we create a path for future generations to dream.
