CODE2040 is a nonprofit organization that creates pathways to educational, professional, and entrepreneurial success in technology for underrepresented minorities with a specific focus on Blacks and Latino/as. CODE2040 aims to close the achievement, skills, and wealth gaps in the United States. Our goal is to ensure that by the year 2040 - when the US will be majority-minority - Black and Latinx people are proportionally represented in America's innovation economy as technologists, investors, thought leaders, and entrepreneurs.
Hack4Diversity: Building Inclusively is only open to Code2040 Portland and Silicon Valley 2017 Fellows.

Did the team display their understanding of what it means to build inclusively, not necessarily through their technical project, but the presence and energy that they brought to the hackathon? (This category will be voted on by ALL hackathon attendees).
