We build cultural change—and win structural change

What We Do

We mobilize tech workers and companies to advance structural change that addresses economic inequity at its roots. We do this in three ways:

  • Education: We create educational spaces in which the tech community can deepen their understanding of structural inequities, the history behind them, and the solutions we can enact together.
  • Public Policy: We advocate for public policy that addresses structural inequity in our economy. We work on issues that have a nexus with tech and the economy, with a focus on housing and workforce & labor.
  • Corporate Practice: We research, develop, and promote equitable corporate practices that build equity and opportunity in the broader economy.

We bring rank-and-file tech workers—and their outsized civic power—into these longstanding movements for justice, accelerating the pace of change.
