As a software company in the book industry, Above the Treeline is uniquely positioned at the intersection of books and technology. Both of these industries have historically lacked diversity.

The mission of our Treeline 2020 programs is to identify and dismantle the barriers to diversity and inclusion in these industries. We will do this through listening, collaboration, networking, mentoring, internships and investment. Our goal is to improve the industry by increasing access.

Internship & Educational Programs. Our goal is to implement our internship programs by summer 2021. If you're interested in getting involved or learning more, please contact us.


Volunteering. Above the Treeline staff volunteer their time to support organizations that align with the mission of Treeline 2020. If you know of an organization that could benefit from volunteer time and expertise (tech, marketing, operations, gardening - you name it!), please let us know!

Questions? Ideas? Feedback? We'd love to hear from you.

Why "Treeline 2020?"

In 2020, it became undeniably clear that "neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim." As an organization, we committed to take action and work to build inclusive communities.

Clear vision is 20/20, allowing one to see close up as well as far away. We strive for clear vision to make incremental, short-term changes that will lead to bigger, long-term change.

Similarly, “hindsight is 20/20.” We want to own and learn from our past mistakes and history. We do not want to repeat mistakes or “go back to sleep.”
