Who We Are

We are a member-driven organization made up of tech workers and tech companies that share our values—that instead of being a force for displacement and inequality, tech can create opportunity and widespread prosperity. Our mission is to mobilize tech workers to create a tech-driven economy in the Bay Area that works for everyone. We educate people in the tech sector around housing and workforce & labor issues and activate them to make change in those key areas.
OUR WORK

Our Story

Our region is becoming increasingly stratified. For some of us, a growing tech sector means increased wealth and access to opportunity. But for many, tech-driven growth is a sign of instability, displacement and inequality.

Despite meeting scores of tech workers who were eager to figure out how to become more civically engaged, we found that the people who worked at the tech companies at the center of our economy were absent from conversations about how to solve the shared problems of the places the tech industry calls home. This led to a corrosive perception that the tech community didn’t care about its effect on its neighbors.

As members of tech community, we believe we are all in this together.

We created TechEquity to bring those voices to the table, to heal that civic rift, and to advance policies that would help the benefits of a growing tech economy accrue to more people.

As members of the tech community, we believe we are all in this together. We have a responsibility to make sure our industry creates value for the world we live in, starting with the place we call home. We are committed to advocating for the kind of change that means all of us will be left better off as our industry continues to grow.
