The organization won $500,000 from the challenge and has since gained more than 1,700 new Bay Area students through their mentorship, boot camp program and workshops. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “This work builds on over $35 million in Google.org grants focused on providing opportunities for underrepresented students to become pioneers of technology, and we’re excited to see how The Hidden Genius Project uses this new grant,” Steele wrote. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Google is one of the several tech companies that struggle with diversity amongst their employees. Its last diversity report from June showed that there is only 1 percent of black tech workers with the company, and only 2 percent overall in the U.S. workforce.

Doe, Donald Trump, and Memes: Judge Blocks Trump's Military Ban on Transgender Service Members @balleralert Judge Blocks Trump's Military Ban on Transgender Service Members - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Monday, Washington, D.C. Federal Court Judge Colleen Koller-Kotelly blocked Donald Trump's ban on transgender people serving in the military. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Trump issued his presidential memorandum in late August. Two of its sections were blocked: his reinstatement of the ban on transgender service members and the ability to recruit openly transgender people for the military, which became effective in June of 2016. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The judge said she made her ruling based off the "disapproval of transgender people generally.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “There is absolutely no support for the claim that the ongoing service of transgender people would have any negative effective on the military at all,” the judge wrote in a strongly worded, 76-page ruling. “In fact, there is considerable evidence that it is the discharge and banning of such individuals that would have such effects.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, the judge did rule in favor of government funds not being used for sex-change operations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This case was centered around Jane Doe v. Donald Trump, a lawsuit brought upon by current transgender service members who were against the ban. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The controversy all began with Trump's tweet from late July that wrote he would not allow transgender people to serve "in any capacity in the U.S. military."
