We are raising money for our annual #GivingTuesday Drive to offset our losses from the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Please consider making a donation today to support our organization! Thanks in advance for investing in the diverse pipeline of Black and Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) to college and working in the tech industry!

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Mission:

The Social Engineering Project, Inc. ("TSEP") is an Oakland based, social impact venture with Stanford University designed to address the lack of diversity in the tech industry through STEM pipeline programs that lead to technical career pathways for underrepresented students of color.

The name comes from a quote by the legendary attorney, Charles Hamilton Houston, who laid down the framework for the landmark Brown vs. The Board of Education of Topeka. He said, "A lawyer is either a social engineer or a parasite on society." Although we do not have to be lawyers for the quote to remain true, our view is that we either are a part of the problem or a part of the solution.

Objective:

To motivate and inspire BIPOC to go to college, major in STEM related disciplines, and expose them to various career pathways in the technology industry. Moreover, students learn about mindfulness, yoga, the environment and work/life balance. Lastly, the students learn about entrepreneurship, personal branding, and networking.

Key Outcomes:

  • Desire to go to college
  • Pursue STEM related careers
  • Develop a deeper respect for the environment and work/life balance
  • Learn how to apply to college, excel on exams, financial aid, college life
  • Learn about their personal brand, how to work in teams, entrepreneurship, and network for future collaboration

  • It is by the grace of God that we and so many others were introduced to this tremendous organization. You have inspired us and our children. We are one of the fortunate families who have remained healthy and employed throughout this pandemic, and feel the least we can do is share some small portion of our blessing with TSEP. Thank you!
