In this episode I interview Jeff Casimir, Co Founder and Executive Director of Turing School of Software and Design. Seeking a more diverse workforce than the software development industry had to offer, Jeff set off to build the kind of world that he wanted to work in.
Turing believes that the status quo is not good enough. Their mission is to unlock human potential by training a diverse, inclusive student body to succeed in high-fulfillment technical careers and create a world powered by technology where the people building it are represented by the people using it.
