What is the Kapor Center for Social Impact?
First off, its pronounced KAY-por.
The Kapor Center Vision
- Advance the body of knowledge about the leaky pipeline by conducting, disseminating and evangelizing action oriented research that leads to more effective, evidence-based solutions.
- Address the pipeline problem by fixing all of the leaks along the pipeline for underrepresented populations, with an emphasis on African Americans and Latina/os.
- Be a catalyst for others in the tech world to match or exceed (in time, attention or money in proportion to their resources), so that a decade from now tech will look more like America.
- Align strategies and efforts between three organizations – the Kapor Center, Level Playing Field Institute and Kapor Capital – to provide a comprehensive approach to expanding tech inclusion.
