Empowered Communities

Innovation without the inclusion of all communities only corrupts our shared future. 
 
We strive for a better connected world that prioritizes equity and justice for everyone, and dismantles systemic barriers to full participation in our increasingly digital world. 
 
That means centering the experiences of those most impacted by and historically left out of ever-evolving technology and information spaces, and helping ensure that people have equal access to essential digital infrastructure and the skills to use it.
