Important Name Change Update

Dear Zimela Family,

Erika Hairston
Co-founder & CEO

Dear Zimela Family,

We have an exciting and important message about Zimela. After spending the summer talking to people across the country about their college educations and career goals, we’ve determined that the place we can make the most differential impact in bringing equity to our workforce is with students at the beginning of their college journeys (versus those in career transition).

Because of this, we are taking the foundation of our work on Zimela and rolling it into a new program called Edlyft. Edlyft increases the pipeline of students that graduate with computer science degrees and land high paying jobs. We are really excited about this new program because of the ways computer science education fundamentally changed our own lives, and the opportunity we believe we have to scale this life changing opportunity for others. We see Edlyft expanding across industries, helping college students across the globe match their coursework to high impact careers.

Thank you for being supporters of Zimela, and we hope that you’ll join us in this new chapter. If you have feedback or questions, feel free to email info@edlyft.com

Yours,

Erika & Arnelle
