Five to Flow and Revolent announce a partnership to support the amazing mission at Climb Hire. Climb Hire recruits and trains diverse and determined working adults, known as “climbers,” to prepare them for entry-level jobs in tech in the US.
According to recent research from Pew, the gap in STEM workforce representation is especially large for Hispanic adults. Hispanic workers make up 17% of total employment across all occupations but just 8% of all STEM workers. Their share of all STEM workers is up 1% since 2016, in line with their growth in the overall workforce. Ninety-five percent of climbers are people of color, with 50% identifying as Black or Latino. Furthermore, 85% of climbers have secured jobs increasing their income 2-3x within 6 months of graduation.

With this in mind, Revolent and Five to Flow’s investment in Climb Hire is timely, as the need to improve gender, racial, and ethnic representation in STEM jobs grows every day.
Five to Flow donates 5% of the revenue from each engagement to a non-profit organization of the client’s choosing. Revolent knows that diverse teams perform better, and Climb Hire shares their mission of making careers in technology more accessible to people from various backgrounds and experiences.
