We are an imperfect company made up of imperfect people running a business in an imperfect country.
If you read nothing further, know that.
We believe that opportunity in both education and career should be a truly level playing field. That an individual’s personal passion and hustle — rather than financial resources, family connections, or skin color — should determine how far they can go.
We know that this has never been the case.
That the seats in the coveted institutions and the jobs in the coveted industries have historically been disproportionate and arbitrary. Or worse, they’ve been built on the backs of people who were forbidden from reaping the benefits.
And sadly, they often still are.
It is our goal to play a small role in changing that. Or said better, it is our goal that our students and graduates will play a huge role in changing that.
Today and every day we strive to support the Black members of our Yellowbrick team, our student community, our partner community, our contributor and industry expert community — and all of those fighting for justice and equality.
We see you. We stand with you. We are accountable to you. Together we need to bring about change. And we are committed to doing everything in our power to help.
