New Nonprofit Promotes Gender Diversity in Silicon Valley

A new nonprofit created by prominent Silicon Valley women with resumes that include Google, Pinterest, and Reddit aims to diversify technology companies, reports The New York Times.

The leaders of Project Include hope to get start-ups to commit to tracking workplace diversity and sharing their data. After seven months, they plan to publish an anonymized report with the results from their first participants. Among the organization's eight founders are former venture capitalist and Reddit CEO Ellen Pao and Bay Area philanthropist Freada Kapor Klein.
