Cool. Why?

There’s a two-fold answer. On the one hand, Facebook is looking to expand its economic growth efforts and demonstrate a commitment to supporting the US workforce, by launching a skills initiative in Michigan. On the other hand, well, I’ll let Sheryl say it, “one of the things we’re working on at Facebook is making sure that the diversity of our field and our industry represents the diversity that’s out there in the world because when you have more voices at the table with more diverse backgrounds, you make better decisions”. We’re ecstatic that Facebook has embraced one of the core values that fuels our entire existence. Naturally, we think this is the start of a beautiful friendship.
