Let’s Close the Opportunity Gap and Open a New Future

DeVry University strives to close our society’s opportunity gap by preparing learners to thrive in careers shaped by continuous technological change. Through innovative programs, relevant partnerships, and exceptional care, we empower students to meaningfully improve their lives, communities, and workplaces.

Just 29% of tech workers are women1

Companies with diverse executive teams are 33% more likely to outperform their peers on profitability2

Advancing Futures

DeVry is committed to helping close the opportunity gap in tech by educating diverse learners and focusing on our own hiring efforts.

 

Within DeVry University, female-identifying colleagues make up 57% of our workforce and African American colleagues make up 18%; Hispanic colleagues make up only 8%. While we're proud of our efforts, we know there's still a lot of work to be done. 

 

You can join us in this commitment by hiring a diverse tech workforce, especially the skilled graduates of our Scholars Programs, or by becoming a scholar yourself. Let’s close the opportunity gap in tech and chart a new course.
