NBDPA President to Visit White House for OSTP Presentation


Five Private-Sector Initiatives Launched at First White House Tech Inclusion Summit


Washington, D.C.—Last month, more than two hundred people convened at the White House Tech Inclusion Summit—an unprecedented gathering of innovative thinkers from business, government, non-profits, and the tech world seeking to ensure that all Americans have the opportunity to learn tech skills–particularly those from underserved and historically underrepresented communities, including women and girls.
