WE VALUE

Data as essential power tools in the movement to open opportunities and remove obstacles to Black participation in local tech ecosystems.

The voices of marginalized tech practitioners. 

Innovation, in people and systems.

The capacity of Black communities to dream, build, and thrive in the tech sector.

Collaboration among tech ecosystem stakeholders.

Change. Without it, local tech ecosystems will never fulfill their economic potential or their capacity to revitalize Black communities.
