Techbridge Girls CEO, Nikole Collins-Puri, talks to HostingAdvice about our programs' broad social impacts:

“We also need to recognize that it’s not just an industry impact, it’s an economic imperative that we include a population of girls in STEM careers that are, with or without a four-year degree, able to obtain a living wage.
