Last week, Riviera hosted a Code2040 Internship Workshop. Code2040 was founded by Tristan Walker, formerly of FourSquare and now Entrepreneur in Residence at Andreessen Horowitz. The non-profit organization brings minority engineering talent to Silicon Valley for summer internships and career training that puts them on a path to success in the tech industry.
The Internship Workshop was an event for the hiring managers and HR representatives from host companies. Adam Ward, Director of University Recruiting at Facebook, spoke about issues faced by minorities in tech, integrating interns into existing work environments, and setting project, work, goals, and milestones.
Riviera was proud to host and sponsor the evening with Code2040. All our charitable efforts target supporting organizations that work to increase the number of engineers and specifically underrepresented groups. This charitable mission has lead us to work with other great organizations like Women Who Code and Level Playing Field Institute as well.
