Amplifying Diverse Voices

Edelweiss by Above the Treeline is uniquely positioned at the intersection of the tech and publishing industries, both of which have historically lacked diversity. The mission of Treeline 2020 is to identify and dismantle the barriers to diversity and inclusion in these industries. We do this through investing in organizations doing great work in these areas, providing access via internships and scholarships, and amplifying marginalized voices. Join us at Bookfest as we amplify diverse voices, moving from margin to center.
