We are very excited to announce that Galvanize has picked RailsBridge as their beneficiary for the Vail Ski Challenge. Galvanize, which runs gSchool, has hosted many Colorado workshops and has been very supportive of our efforts there. They are opening offices in San Francisco and New York City, where we have active chapters.
The future of employment is increasingly digital and skills-based. At Galvanize and gSchool we have a created an immersive learning environment for efficiently equipping new workers with relevant and immediately employable software programming skills. We are excited to partner with RailsBridge who share our passion for diversifying the talent base by creating educational programming and a community to support women in the field of software programming.
— Jim Deters, Galvanize CEO
We believe that Galvanize is very mission aligned, and we are excited to work together to increase diversity in tech, so that people of all backgrounds can feel welcome and comfortable in our industry.
