Product Details


“Through insights from his remarkable nonprofit, Resilient Coders, David Delmar Sentíes offers a provocative invitation to reinvent the tech industry and our economic future.”
—former Governor of Massachusetts Deval L. Patrick

“An incredible breakdown of how oppression and discriminatory systems impact the education and hiring of Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities. David has provided depth, data, experience, and knowledge in one necessary, easy read that details the whys and hows around how you either contribute to or are a victim of systemic barriers, and where progress needs to be made.”
—Pariss Chandler, founder and CEO, Black Tech Pipeline

“Finally, a leader in tech workforce development confronts head-on the issue of poverty and race in the industry. Delmar Sentíes is a warrior for equity, and he confronts both our assumptions and our biases in a way that rips away the band-aid solutions that we’ve accepted and leaves us thinking about how we can truly bring equity to the field.”
—Sheila Ireland, president and CEO, Philadelphia OIC

“This is compelling and informative reading for anyone who cares about making access to the tech workforce more equitable. If you’re dissatisfied with the status quo, with incremental progress, and one-off victories—and you should be—you will be energized by this book. As a technologist and founder, David brings his expertise and experience to bear, highlighting current practices and laying out pathways toward catalyzing true change. What We Build with Power is calling us to think bigger, to go deeper, and to shake systems in order that transformative economic inclusion and justice can finally take place in tech.”
—Daisy Magnus-Aryitey, co-executive director of Code the Dream
