Caroline is passionate about making technology accessible to all as well as using tech as a path towards a more equitable society. As the CEO of Hack the Gap, she collaboratively creates pathways for more women, non-binary people, Black, Indigenous and Latinx technologists to get into and thrive in their tech careers.
