Our core mission at Galvanize is to provide access to the tech industry to anyone who has the aptitude and drive to build a career in the fields of entrepreneurship, web development, and data science.
As part of that mission, we’re committed to being as inclusive as possible.
This means ensuring that members of underrepresented communities have the opportunity to develop the skills and working relationships they need to thrive in tech.
Like Galvanize, Adobe is committed to cultivating diversity in the tech workforce. Adobe is actively creating a workplace that works for everyone — by sourcing diverse applicants; improving recruiting, development, and retention programs for underrepresented minorities; and implementing a number of practices to combat unconscious bias and promote inclusive hiring.
To this end, Adobe recently launched the Adobe Digital Academy to provide pathways for women, people of color, LGBTQ individuals and veterans to pursue web and Android development.
Galvanize is pleased to partner with Adobe in this effort, which offers a tuition sponsorship and living stipend to two low-income, underrepresented candidates to take web development immersive courses at the Galvanize San Francisco campus.
“After piloting the Adobe Digital Academy in 2016 and seeing scholarship students successfully convert to full-time positions, we are excited to be adding additional education partners,” said Liz Lowe, Adobe’s Innovation Lead. “Galvanize is a great partner because it heralds accessibility as integral to its own success as it does to the success of the larger tech industry.”
The Adobe Digital Academy Tuition Sponsorship offers recipients the following benefits
- A Galvanize Web Development education
- Tuition sponsorship and a living stipend
- A three-month entry-level technical immersive internship with a variety of Adobe teams including Digital Media, Digital Marketing, and Cloud Technology
- A tailored professional development program, a mentorship program, and ongoing cohort support
