The Tech Accountability Coalition
The Tech Accountability Coalition was co-created in partnership with tech companies, trusted organizations from underrepresented communities, academic institutions, and think tanks. The Coalition’s approach lays the foundation to track, measure, and accelerate DEI at an industry level. Over time, they will release key insights to improve transparency and trust in tech and unify under collective goals, providing a model for others to follow.
