Why Sponsor Diversity in Engineering
Health Catalyst, a data warehousing, analytics and outcomes-improvement company that helps healthcare organizations, is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace. As part of their efforts, they created this Diversity in Engineering Scholarship to advocate for those who are currently underrepresented in the tech industry. Diversity includes differences in gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability status, work experience, and so many other variations in the human experience.
As a coding bootcamp striving to increase diversity in technology, we are excited to see Health Catalyst sponsor a qualified individual to receive their education at Devmountain. Together, we believe that the only way to drive change is to invest in developing and supporting diverse groups of engineers.
We not only hope that many people will apply for this scholarship, but that they will also make an effort to receive a technology-based education regardless if they are the chosen candidate.
