Tallo, the nation’s premier online platform for connecting the next generation of talent with higher education and career opportunities, announces a new partnership with CodeHouse, a nonprofit cultivating a strong pipeline between students of color and industry-leading technology companies. This partnership coincides with CodeHouse’s Scholar Initiative (CHSI) to prepare underrepresented students attending Historically Black Colleges/Universities (HBCUs) for careers in STEM.
Members of CHSI’s inaugural class will join the more than 1.4 million students and job seekers on the Tallo platform to showcase their skills and accomplishments, connect with mentors in their fields, and create a professional network to foster education and career connection opportunities. Tallo is represented in more that 27,000 high school and 4,500 colleges and universities across the country, and partners with hundreds of higher education institutions, organizations, and companies, including many of the country’s leaders in technology and STEM innovation.
“We created Tallo to give our users the ability to overcome traditional boundaries and connect with meaningful opportunities,” said Casey Welch, CEO and Co-founder of Tallo. “Tallo is proud to partner with CodeHouse in an effort to create a more equitable space for students of color in their educational and professional fields.”
On the Tallo platform, CHSI members will create free profiles to build a professional brand for themselves. They’ll be able to connect with college programs, jobs, internships, professional mentors, and over $20 billion in financial aid and scholarships. Colleges and companies on Tallo can connect with CHSI members on Tallo to build relationships and share relevant opportunities. Leaders from Tallo and CodeHouse previously partnered to host an education-focused panel for the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
“It’s time for companies and employers across the country to step up and do their part to close the diversity gap in the technology industry,” said Ernest Holmes, President and Co-founder of CodeHouse. “We’re excited to work together with Tallo to help set students up for success by fostering the connections they need.”
