CODE2040 creates pathways to success for Blacks and Latino/as in the innovation economy.
GOAL: We believe that Blacks and Latinxs are powerful innovators. Our Bold Goal is that, by 2040, we are recognized and valued as such, we are leading benefactors to and beneficiaries of the innovation economy, and we have the economic and social capital we need to thrive and to build generational wealth.
VISION: We believe the nation as a whole will be stronger when the contributions of communities of color are sought out and included within the innovation economy. As result, in 2040, we envision a nation as a whole that is more equitable, innovative, and prosperous.
In 2040, Blacks and Latinxs are recognized and valued as powerful architects of technological, economic, and societal innovations. We are visible and prolific in the Innovation Economy. We are hugely successful across a wide range of metrics, within and beyond the Innovation Economy. Blacks’ and Latinxs’ unique contributions are sought after and we have the power to pursue whatever career paths and opportunities we want. We see our success as possible and believable, and know that—without a doubt—we are capable. In 2040, Blacks and Latinxs succeed by being who we are, not by leaving parts of our identities behind.
