F5 joins Reboot Representation Tech Coalition partnership

 June 11, 2019

F5 is joining the Reboot Representation Tech Coalition, which aims to double the number of black, Latina, and Native American women gaining computing degrees, according to VentureBeat.

“Creating a more diverse and inclusive company is a core tenet of F5. We believe our differences — when embraced with humility and respect — drive smarter decisions, increased innovation, stronger performance, and a culture where everyone can be themselves,” says François Locoh-Donou, CEO of F5. “But beyond our individual efforts, companies need to work together, if we are to make a significant impact on the inequities for underrepresented women of color that hold back the tech industry at large.”

Using the power of collectivity to make a difference

F5 has pledged over $15 million to invest in programs that help underrepresented women of color achieve computer science degrees. 

This is the first time the tech industry as a whole has come together to use the power of collectivity to drive change.

The Coalition was formed after a report from McKinsey & Company and Pivotal Ventures revealed that Black, Latina, and Native American women earning computing degrees had declined 6 per cent to 4 per cent over the past decade.

The report highlighted that investment in higher education was key to achieving better equality in the technology industry. The Coalition is therefore investing in programs and initiatives that recruit and retain underrepresented women of color in tech.
