Code.org, College Board, CSforALL, CSTA, the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, and Siegel Family Endowment recently announced the launch of a new coalition dedicated to expanding access to, and participation in, computer science (CS) for Hispanic students in education and workforce pathways during CS Week. The Hispanic CS Coalition has chosen social impact PR and advocacy firm, Whiteboard Advisors as the agency of record.
The Hispanic CS Coalition aims to generate a deeper understanding of barriers to participation in CS education among Hispanic learners, advance research on best practices, create programmatic solutions, and recommend policy interventions with the potential to increase representation of Hispanics in CS.
Said Jose Antonio Tijerino, president and CEO of HHF, "It is critical we move forward with urgency and purpose to prepare Latinos for jobs of today and the future while also accelerating economic mobility. It is a privilege to partner with Code.org, College Board, CSforAll, CSTA, Siegel Family Endowment and Whiteboard Advisors as we launch Hispanic CS Coalition and we look forward to adding additional partners in first-quarter 2023."
