#What is ProjectDiane?

Read This AWESOME Fast Company Article About The Importance of #ProjectDiane

digitalundivided’s #ProjectDiane disrupted pattern-matching in tech by identifying diverse women founders of startups/tech companies.

#ReWriteTheCode is the final phase of #ProjectDiane.

Launched in February 2015 the initiative is named in honor of Diane Nash, an unsung heroine of the Civil Rights era whose brilliant tactical mind led to several of the movement’s major victories- including the march in Selma.

Ms. Nash’s courageous fight for equality inspired us in a time where diverse women in the overall tech community grapple with “similar but not the same” treatment from the larger start-up community.

Help us complete #ProjectDiane by helping us produce a documentary film on Intersectionality in tech. 

Why is #ProjectDiane So Important?

Current efforts to diversity tech completely overlook the role Intersectionality, occupying multiple identities, plays in your ability to successfully build tech companies. While focus on the early end of the pipeline is important (ie. coding programs for kids), it's hard to "be" what you can't "see".

#ProjectDiane shows that the STEM pipeline leads to an sea, not a sewer, by highlighting founders building and growing their startups.

How to Funds Will Be Used

Your donation will be put to GOOD work. Funds will be used to pay for the production (filming, camera, editing, etc) of a professionally produced 15 minute documentary film highlighting the challenges of intersectionality in tech.

We're hoping to exceed our $25,000 goal and be able to expand the scope of the documentary to include an interview with Ms. Nash, Free screenings at public schools, and more!
