Our goal has always been to connect the leaders in mobile and educate the marketing industry. This year, along with supporting the mobile community by hosting Postback, we are also inviting our partners to support another part of our culture at TUNE— continual education and leadership.
As a way for TUNE to make an even bigger impact at Postback, we are working with Seattle Women in Technology—a nonprofit working to increase the involvement of women in technology by strengthening the local community and developing a partnership network with aligned organizations.
We are facilitating donations to benefit charitable organizations that actively promote educational opportunities for women to develop computer science skills and become leaders at technology companies.
Join us in our effort to inspire and support women leaders in technology.
With a $5,000 tax-deductible donation, partners will receive the following:
- A featured table during both days of Postback
- 20% discount code for Postback tickets to share with clients or your team
- Company logo included on the Postback website
- Company logo highlighted in the lobby of Postback
- Inclusion in a Postback press release
- Inclusion in a TUNE blog post and a WiT blog post discussing the partnership
- Recognition at WiT’s annual Leaders Dinner in August, attended by leaders of women in tech organizations
- Recognition on TUNE’s social media sites (Twitter, Facebook, G+, &LinkedIn)
100% of the donations will benefit Tech Trek and Ada Developers Academy, both WiT partners, and the University of Washington Computer Science and Engineering’s DawgBytes summer camp program.

Tech Trek WA is a science and math camp designed to develop interest, excitement, and self-confidence in young women who will enter eighth grade in the fall. It features hands-on activities in math, science, and related fields. All sleeping, eating, instructional, and recreational facilities are located on a university campus where camps are held.
Ada Developers Academy (Ada, for short) is a nonprofit yearlong software development program for women. They are not just another code bootcamp, they’re a tuition-free program dedicated to changing the gender imbalance in tech, one amazing grad at a time. They have already graduated their first class with 100% placement in programming jobs (before they graduated, no less!). By the end of 2015, they will have helped to launch the programming careers of 85 amazing women programmers.
University of Washington Computer Science & Engineering educates tomorrow’s innovators, conducts cutting-edge research, and creates opportunities for Washington’s students to discover computer science. Their K-12 outreach program, DawgBytes (“A Taste of CSE”), introduces students and teachers to the exciting world of computer science through a variety of activities, including summer day camps for elementary, middle and high school students, with an emphasis on engaging more girls in the field; community partnerships to bring computer science education to more students of color; and CS4HS, an annual summer workshop that helps teachers to incorporate computer science in their classrooms.
