createMPLS stands in solidarity with the Black community against injustice and racism. We recognize that there are systemic issues, lack of opportunity, and structures that have unfairly targeted Black, indigenous/native, and other people of color which has created an underrepresentation in STEM fields. We have been listening and reflecting on how the organization can play a role in furthering access to technology learning programs.
Affirming that Black lives matter engages our core mission of preparing resilient students who have persisted despite systemic exclusion from our communities for the future of work through innovation and accessible technology learning programs. We are committed to continuing the dialogue and taking action in promoting racial equity and justice.
