COVID-19 has forced school closures in 191 countries, affecting 1.5 billion students.

40-50% of these students do not have access to a computer and/or no internet access.
No training and little preparation will sabotage e-learning requirements for millions.

Digital schooling can disproportionately affect low-income students and those with special needs.

Many populations lack even the basic skills of turning on a device, logging into an app, reading instructions, clicking in the right place, typing answers and staying on task.

A 2019 study shows that men of color were the group most likely to leave tech jobs due to unfairness, with 40% citing that reason.

Under-represented tech workers most frequently cited “unfairness or mistreatment” as the reason for leaving, a factor that was mentioned twice as much as recruitment for better opportunities.

Racial discrimination is more than about landing interviews and the job offers - it includes siloed networks.

80% percent of all social networks are racially homogeneous, so  it’s especially hard for people of color to break into predominantly white networks.

In 2018, only 20% of all jobs in technology were held by women.

The quit rate of women in technology is almost twice as high as that of men.

Cyber Security is a fast growing field with high paying jobs critical to the economy

Yet students are in high need of assistance from professionals rather than their parents to learn about the opportunities, states the Research Consortium on Digital Safety and Cyber Careers
