Closing the Opportunity Gap

Building a Diverse Tech Talent Pipeline 

Classes Start Every 8 Weeks

Say Hello to Our 10Kx25 Initiative

The world is becoming increasingly reliant on technology. Demand for skilled professionals in the tech sector is at an all-time high. But an opportunity gap persists, resulting in an underrepresentation of diverse talent such as women, African Americans and Hispanics in technology roles. 

  • Only 29% of tech workers are women, 8% are Hispanic and 9% are Black1

  • Two-thirds of employers (68%) report a lack of diversity in their tech workforce2

  • 70% of job seekers are attracted to work for a company that demonstrates a commitment to diversity and inclusion3

Our Goal: Place 10,000 New Tech Talents in Jobs By the End of 2025

With our 10Kx25 initiative, DeVry is committed to closing the opportunity gap by mobilizing a diverse tech talent pipeline, creating educational opportunities for new students and new hires alike and improving employee retention.

Our students and alumni are a diverse, qualified and career-ready group of graduates, near-grads and new students in our innovative technology degree and certificate programs in areas like software development, cyber security, cloud computing and data analysis.

68% of business leaders report a lack of diversity.
