About TechEquity Collaborative
Who We Are
The TechEquity Collaborative advocates for a tech-driven economy in the Bay Area that works for everyone. We are a membership-driven organization made up of individuals and companies that share our values.
We also run TechResistance.org, a project to organize tech workers to resist policy efforts at the US national level to oppress, divide, silence and persecute.
The TechEquity Collaborative is a fiscally-sponsored program of the Kapor Center for Social Impact. We are based in Oakland, CA.
What We Do
The TechEquity Collaborative organizes the tech industry and tech workers to contribute as active citizens to the Bay Area’s inclusive growth. Our goal is to improve the economic resiliency of underserved communities and strengthen the civic fabric in the Bay Area through developing an aware, empathic and civically active tech community.
We organize our community around three policy areas:
- Workforce Development
- Access to Technology
We host informational events to expose our members to the complexities of these issues, partner with other community organizations to push for policy changes in these areas, and build programs and projects that innovate in these areas. We also create opportunities for our members to put their unique skills into action in their communities.
