25 Organizations Bringing Diversity and Inclusion to Tech

This post closes out a week-long series on solutions for inclusion and diversity in tech. Previous posts include:

Day 1 — How Startups Embracing Diversity Can Lead with Inclusion

Day 2 — Accessibility is Key for Diversity & Inclusion in Tech

Day 3 — Visuals Matter: Using Imagery to Promote and Support Diversity & Inclusion Efforts

Day 4 — How to Retain Diverse Talent

The series offered insights into the Change Catalyst mission of focusing on solutions that we all can use to build better products, create inclusive cultures and better connect with our audiences.

It seems fitting that 3 short weeks before we open the doors to San Francisco’s Innovation Hangar to welcome crowds of innovators, policymakers and entrepreneurs for #TechInclusion16, that we share a short list of 25 organizations with diversity and inclusion in their DNA.

To ensure we captured a range of changemakers, we’ve included groups that cover Education, Workplace, Entrepreneurship, Policy and Ecosystem Development. The lists are by no means exhaustive. We encourage you to visit, explore and add the organizations you see making a difference.
