Advocacy in Technology is a grassroots movement focused on shifting thought paradigms, and works to create intersectionally equitable workplace cultures built through social learning to raise the overall standard of learning in technology.
Advocacy in Technology motivates our youth to be receptive to change by inspiring them, further engaging disengaged individuals in technology. To raise the standard of learning and social awareness, it provides connectivity and affordability, and in turn accessibility to educational resources and career advancement opportunities. It uses an approach that ricochets to educate our youth by raising awareness towards biases that push back on diversity, equity, and inclusion, and the intersectionality of it in the workplace.
