Economic access with Ada Developers Academy’s Alexandra Holien

Ada Developers Academy is on a mission to increase access to high paying jobs in technology. Each year, Ada admits a cohort of 90+ students from underrepresented groups for a year-long coding bootcamp that will prepare them for developer jobs at leading tech firms. On average, Ada graduates have realized a 100% increase in wages over their previous jobs, financial capital that is then invested in the underrepresented communities that Ada students traditionally come from. In this episode, Ada’s Director of Strategic Partnerships and Development Alexandra Holien joins Revolve to discuss Ada’s mission and impact, how to promote equitable and inclusive growth, and the value of humility.
