WHY DENIM?

The most common question we’ve gotten so far is…What do the colors mean? Why D.E.N.I.M.? 

There are three answers to the question. 

1. The colors in the pin are derived from the acronym of Ignite Diverse Tech’s motto/slogan “Diversity Encourages New Innovation Makers,” D.E.N.I.M. 
2. Denim material is an AWESOME analogy for diversity because denim comes in so many colors.
3. And lastly…people in tech wear denim 😉
