Creating Diversity Opportunities in Technology at Microsoft

Challenge

Cyborg Mobile partnered with Microsoft to create a program to tap into high potential students from underrepresented communities to bring innovative ideas into the company. 

Approach

In partnership with Microsoft, Cyborg Mobile designed The New Technologists (TNT), a summer academy focused on productivity, communication, and collaboration for college students from underrepresented minority groups. TNT helps build participants skills with various tools and programming languages before introducing them to Microsoft’s recruiting pipeline. 

 

We developed TNT from inception to execution, and continue to scale its growth over time. Cyborg Mobile led the talent recruiting, screening, hiring, onboarding, professional development, technical training, and the diversity and inclusion training for the Microsoft program staff.  

Value

Cyborg Mobile has helped one of the largest tech companies in the world to change the way they view and do their recruiting. We have successfully graduated five cohorts, with nearly 75% of participants being invited back to Microsoft in some capacity.
