The BroadStreet Institute is a unique, virtual, hands-on data internship that empowers women of color to build technical skills in data and leadership. They are proud to play a role in increasing diversity in data science. Interns come to BroadStreet for work experience. BroadStreet serves as a bridge that spans between college and that first job as a data scientist, a process that usually takes around 4 years. They want to build up their Community Data Project and pair up interns with collaborating nonprofit organizations. In the U.S., there are over 30,000 nonprofits working to improve community health. Nonprofit organizations need data to bring in donations, grants, and funding. Often, the places most in need of funding do not have any data resources. Their big idea is to connect their dedicated team of data interns with communities in need. They believe that this will help their interns to build data skills, make important professional connections, increase representation of women of color in data science and leadership, all while serving nonprofits doing important work in communities.
